AUSTIN - Most Americans will never forget the day they heard about the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in Newtown, Conn., when a man took the lives of six women and 20 children.
Dec. 14, 2017, marks the fifth-year anniversary of the horrific incident and family members are still mourning the loss of their loved ones.
UT graduate Danielle Vabner is the older sister of Noah Pozner, who was killed during the shooting in 2012. She expressed her grief via Twitter writing, “Hard to believe this picture was taken over five years ago now — just a few months before Noah was killed at Sandy Hook. Forever six years old, forever loved, forever my little brother.”

She then tweeted former President Barack Obama,“I will never forget how gracious, kind, and comforting @BarackObama was in those horrible days following Sandy Hook. Thank you."
Last year, Vabner spoke at a vigil for the lives lost at Sandy Hook at the University United Methodist Church. She closed the night saying, "Love will win."
