As incredible as the news coming out of Newtown was a year ago, as wrenching as the images of frightened children and grieving relatives were, delicate expressions of support and hope also emerged.
White roses bearing the visages and names of those who lost their lives to the gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The warm nighttime glow of a church offering solace to the mourning. A pile of snow-dusted teddy bears laid out in homage to the tiny victims.
Other images — including those of the gunman and evidence photos from within the school — drive home the senselessness of the day folks in Newtown simply call "12/14."
Here’s a gallery of images that show the horror that visited a New England town on a December day, and its resilience.
