Allison Miller, a 16-year-old Masuk High School student, made a short video on Monroe and Newtown's bond since the Sandy Hook tragedy.

This is a video posted on YouTube by Allison Miller, 16, of Monroe using photos she Googled and music to highlight how the town welcomed Sandy Hook Elementary School students and staff after the shooting in Newtown.

I am a proud citizen of Monroe, CT and am so happy that my old school, Chalk Hill, can now be the new school (home) for our Sandy Hook neighbors!

I too am a graduate of Chalk Hill Middle School. Class of 1974. Though it was many, many years ago, I am so proud that the town of Monroe opened up their arms to welcome Sandy Hook. It just goes to show you that in times of crisis, there are no boundaries, no walls, only love and compassion. God bless...
