Christmas Day In Newtown

Eustaquio Pena wipes a tear from his eye while walking through a display of Christmas trees set up outside Sandy Hook Elementary school in honor of the 20 children slain during the Dec. 14 shooting rampage. Pena and his family brought bags of presents for each child and spread them out on the ground as a memorial. "We cannot do anything about what happened," said Pena's brother, Luiz Fernandes, "But we can try to make people a little happier."MARK MIRKO, Hartford Courant
