Local leaders joined in a nationwide moment of silence for the 26 victims who were shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut one week ago.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter paused with grade school students at Samuel Power Elementary in Mantua Friday morning.

Mayor Nutter said his thoughts were with the parents of the young victims in Connecticut, and he hopes to make Philadelphia safer for all children.

The observance turned into a celebration of life as students turned to music to celebrate their annual winter concert.
