The casket bearing the body of six year old James Mattioli. He's one of 20 children killed in a mass school shooting last week in Newtown Connecticut -- a town still in mourning.
Loved ones try to cope with the loss after a 20-year old gunman opened fire at the Sandy Hook Elementary school, before taking his own life.
In his wake -- images that once brought joy now elicit tears.
In a small step towards a return to normalcy, some schools reopen in the grief-stricken town.
On the streets security surrounds yellow school buses.
Parents hold on tight knowing that life can change in an instant -- even as they know it will move on.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) PETER MUCKELL, A PARENT, SAYING:
"There will be another catastrophe or another world event and we'll be forgotten about for a while and then it will be the one year anniversary. You know how it goes, Everyone knows."
Funeral services are expected to continue throughout the week.
