Murray calls for Dunblane spirit among survivors of Sandy Hook School massacre

London, Dec 22(ANI): British tennis star Andy Murray has spoken about surviving the Dunblane massacre to give optimism to families of the Sandy Hook School victims.

Britain’s US Open champ, 25, was just eight when a gunman slaughtered 16 pupils and their teacher at Dunblane Primary in 1996, the Daily Star reports.

In a television interview Murray urged Newtown’s families to stay strong together.

The US Open champion said that our community is extremely strong and if the masses come together to try and create a positive atmosphere, that would be the best way to deal with it.

Murray, who is training in Miami, earlier wrote on Facebook: “My heart goes out to all those poor children, their families and community.” (ANI)
