Gene Rosen took in six students who were sitting at the end of his driveway after escaping Sandy Hook Elementary School. Rosen ran upstairs and grabbed an armful of stuffed animals he kept there. He gave those to the children, along with some fruit juice and sat with them as two of the students described seeing their teacher being shot. (Mary Altaffer/AP)
