Bailey Rosiere was in 2nd grade when the shooting happened and says it still has an emotional impact on her today. She described what it was like walking through the memorial.
“It makes it not just an empty or upsetting or sad feeling; it’s more of a deep impact," she said. "Because you can’t ever forget no matter how young you were."
Several more events are planned in Littleton Saturday including a community remembrance ceremony.
