Video: Safety Harbor students send their love to Sandy Hook

Safety Harbor Middle School's 1,400 students gathered quietly in the school's court yard Tuesday morning for a group photo to send to Sandy Hook, the elementary school in Connecticut where 20 students and six teachers were killed on Friday.

As a professional photographer snapped the photo, students made a heart symbol with their hands. Many students wore green and white, Sandy Hook's school colors.

All the classes were writing letters to send to the Sandy Hook school, and Safety Harbor Middle School's principal, Alison Kennedy, decided that a group photo would be a good thing to include. After the photo was taken, the school's chorus sang a song titled, Come Together Now, prompting Kennedy to wipe away tears.
