LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville 10-year-old's idea to honor the victims of the Connecticut school massacre turned into a permanent memorial in Louisville.

With bagpipers leading the way, 200 elementary school students from Bloom, Collegiate, St. James and St. Agnes spilled into Tyler Park in the Highlands.

Henry Helmers of Bloom, with the help of the city, the Tyler Park Association and the Olmstead Conservacy got 26 trees planted here to honor the victims. He's hoping for a lasting message.
