Newtown mother: Dream visits with son; new purpose

By By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — After her 6-year-old son Noah was killed in the Connecticut school shooting, Veronique Pozner (vehr-oh-NEEK' POHZ'-nur) has had good dreams, like the time her son told her he was having fun. And she has had nightmares that bring her to tears.

Pozner has struggled to cope with the gaping hole left by the loss of her energetic, affectionate son. She has tried to help her other children cope. And she has led her family in pushing the White House for policy changes.

Gunman Adam Lanza shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School last month and killed 20 first-graders and six educators. He committed suicide as police arrived. He also killed his mother at their Newtown home.

Pozner says she believes the mother was negligent by taking him to shooting ranges.
