In this Nov. 26, 2010 file photo, Hilary Waller holds her dog Gali as she walks near her home in Newtown, Pa. Waller remembers begging her mother to let her fast on Yom Kippur. At 10-years-old she was a bit too young, but embracing the rigid discipline seemed desperately important. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
