On December 14, 2012, twenty children and six adults were shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history. As the community of Newtown struggled to make sense of the tragedy, the nation responded with prayer, philanthropy and politics. One man responded with paint. Roger Hutchison, a youth minister and lay leader with Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, SC, was invited to the small Connecticut town to aid in the emotional and spiritual recovery of those effected by the tragedy. Hutchison, who graduated from Warren Wilson College in 1994 with a B.A. in Humanities, gladly accepted.
