Huntsville Group in Newtown to Comfort with Song


A group of Oakwood University students traveled across country for hours to offer comfort to the Newtown, Conn., community after Friday's deadly school shooting.

Volunteers from the National Association for the Prevention of Starvation were in Florida when they heard about the shootings that killed 27 people, mostly elementary school children, at a school in Newtown. According to a news release, a dozen students traveled more than a day to make it to Newtown.

On Monday the NAPS students stood and sang at the funeral for Jack Pinto, 6, who was killed in the shooting.

The NAPS team has traveled to scenes of tragedy in the past, such as the Virginia Tech campus shooting in 2007 and the 9/11 tragedy.
