In this Monday, Dec. 24, 2012 photo, a table is set up in front of the home of Joy Manning, neighbor of program coordinator Gala Thompson, so passersby can write on paper hearts for the Paper Hearts Across America program, in Billings, Mont. The goal of Paper Hearts Across America is to collect nearly 19 million paper hearts, the estimated amount it would take to stretch a chain of hearts from Billings to Newtown, Conn. Thompson tells the Billings Gazette her family started Paper Hearts Across America as a way to discuss the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings where 26 people were killed Dec. 14.
