Candlelight vigil honors Nashville shooting victims

A candlelight vigil was held in Nashville to honor the six victims of the Covenant School shooting. First Lady Jill Biden made an unannounced stop to lay flowers at the memorial for the three children and three adults who lost their lives. One of those victims was Katherine Koonce, the head of the elementary school. Steven Curtis Chapman is a GRAMMY Award-winning singer and songwriter and was also a close friend of Koonce. He tells Anderson Cooper how the life-long educator played such an important role in his family’s lives.

Plus, Jordan Gomes was just nine years old when a gunman entered her elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 20 students and six adults. She joins AC360 to discuss the “hopelessness” she feels whenever she hears about another mass shooting, especially involving children.
