In the wake of the horrific killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School last week, Americans across the country are wondering how they can aid the families of the victims. There are numerous methods to donate money, but you also can help in other ways, such as volunteering your time, writing a card or letter, or sending a teddy bear to a child in Newtown.

UPDATE 6:30 p.m.: Originally it was thought that Adam Lanza, the gunman, shot his mother at the Sandy Hook Elementary school, where she was a teacher's aide. ABC has learned that, in fact, Nancy Lanza was killed at her home (by her son) prior to the massacre. He then drove to the school, where he killed 20 children and six adults, before killing himself.
Here’s a look at some interesting events that took place on this day in history:

Kate Middleton checked into King Edward VII hospital last week for acute morning sickness following the announcement of her pregnancy. While she was there, a pair of Australian radio DJs called the hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. The worker who took the call and patched it through to Middleton's private nurse was found dead Friday morning, possibly a result of suicide.
