Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is looking forward to Dec. 15, the day after the first anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"I can't wait for the 15th of December to get here, to tell the truth — for the families, for the town of Newtown, for those of us who were involved that day. That getting by the one year [anniversary] is going to be real important," Malloy told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday.

Story continues below video.



Dec. 14 is the first anniversary of the shootings at the school in Newtown, Conn., where gunman Adam Lanza opened fire, killing 26 students and teachers, then himself.
The anniversary is expected to be low-key both for the families and the community, Malloy said.

"I think the families overwhelmingly want it to be low-key. I think the community of Newtown wants it to be low-key — as low-key as something like that can be," he said. "Lives were changed."

The accomplishments of residents as they tried to move forward brought about some "remarkable things" as families worked to remember their children, Malloy said.

"When you look back and you see some of the things that some of these parents have accomplished — involved in advocacy, remembering their children, in their daily activities and trying to move forward.

"A lot of them . . . have become advocates on gun safety, and have done remarkable things and accomplished remarkable things," he said. "There's a real dedication on the part of these families to remember their children by good works and good deeds."
