This iReport is part of an assignment:
Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
Standing With You ( A song for Newtown)
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
This song was written on 12/14/12, the day of the Newtown, CT shooting. John Ciambriello lives in southern Connecticut so the shooting was so close to home. As he watched the coverage on the television, he thought about his own three girls and tried to comprehend the loss. He wrote this song that afternoon and he hopes the song helps people convey how they feel as it did for him when he wrote it. The music video was taped in West Haven on the green on December 22, 2012 after the event was posted on Facebook. People came out on a cold and windy day to be a part of the video and show their support for Newtown. Many local businesses donated food for the day.
