Spiritual symbols crafted for the survivors of the attack

FRESNO, Calif.

Yvonne Silva is putting together strings of hope for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary. "We love them, we are sorry. We will continue to pray for them and if there is anything we can do to help them with anything all they got to do is call," said Silva.

Silva said her Catholic faith is what called her to make 700 rosaries for the mourning community. She and other volunteers are now hand making rosaries for every child who attends the school. Volunteers are also putting together special strings for families who lost someone in the shooting. "If it's something in their room, if it's hanging on their bedpost, if they carry it with them. It is something that is a reminder that God is with them," said Silva.

Yvonne's hope is to send the rosaries by the end of the week. Her ultimate goal is to hand deliver them with a hug to the people of Newtown, Connecticut.
