Newtown youth director: Shooting 'still feels very unreal to people'

Last night, the clergy of Newtown, Connecticut gathered to offer prayers and messages of hope to their grieving community.

Jason Graves, youth director at the Al Hedaya Islamic center of Newtown, prayed at the memorial service as a representative of Newtown's Muslim community.

Graves explains how he's approaching discussing the shooting with the kids he's working with, explaining that "it's very hard because a lot of children haven't wrapped their heads around it."
