They walked to Sandy Hook in twos and threes, some with children in strollers or infants bundled against the chill and fog.

Some had teddy bears tucked under their arms. Others held bouquets of fresh flowers, Christmas wreaths with red ribbon, balloons in pink and blue and white. They came to leave gifts and cards and candles at a roadside shrine near Sandy Hook Elementary School on Sunday night.

Police cars blocked the road to the school, and traffic was backed up even farther. So most visitors parked two miles away near the center of town and walked the slick icy road, talking in whispers, if at all. Mostly, a quiet parade of pilgrims passed through the freezing night.
