Retired psychologist Gene Rosen will never forget the unexpected house guests who appeared at his driveway last Friday morning.
After feeding his cats at approximately 9:30 a.m., Rosen stepped outside and found six young children sitting in a semicircle at the end of his driveway on Riverside Rd. As he drew near, he overheard a school bus driver telling the kids that everything would be alright.

âI thought they were practicing for a play or Cub Scouts, and I went and approached them and it became clear that they were so distressed,â Rosen told CBS News. âAnd I took them into my house, and they were crying and talking, and I got them into my house, and they were crying and talking, and I got them some stuffed animals.â

As the children began talking, Rosen, who is now a grandfather, finally learned what they had just endured.
âWe can’t go back to school,” one little boy told Rosen. ”Our teacher is dead. Mrs. Soto; we don’t have a teacher.”

As he tried his best to console the childrenâoffering them juice and his grandkidsâ stuffed animals to play withâfor the 30-40 minutes before their parents arrived, Rosen said he was touched by one moment of levity amidst the horror of what had happened.
”This little boy turns around, and composes himself, and he looks at me like he had just removed himself from the carnage and he says, `Just saying, your house is very small,”’ Rosen said. ”I wanted to tell him, `I love you. I love you.”’
