Today's Video: From Copacabana to Connecticut

On Wednesday we'll discuss the aftermath of the recent massacre of twenty-seven people including twenty children in Newtown, Connecticut.

The mass killings that took place last Friday have led to all sorts of reactions worldwide such as  messages of condolence from heads of state, signs of support from European soccer players and prayers from students in Edmonton, Canada.

On the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil a simple and poignant memorial was created in remembrance of all those who died in the Newtown massacre.

The tribute from the Rio de Paz (River of Peace) group is reportedly a sign of solidarity to those affected by the massacre and a call to greater arms control in both Brazil and the U.S.
