Organizing for Action Franklin County/Roanoke City has built a temporary monument to remember the six month anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
"The monument remembers those killed in that incident and also the 1,405 Virginians injured due to gun violence each year" said Eddie Seay with Organizing for Action.
The monument is built using 1,405 flags.
There was a special ceremony on Saturday in Roanoke off Hershberger Road.
The masked ISIS militant who appears to be shown beheading American journalist Steve Sotloff spoke on video before killing him, saying, “just as your missiles continue to strike our people our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."
The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
