    Monday, September 18 2017 9:13 PM EDT2017-09-19 01:13:21 GMT

Kids returned to class for the very first time since the shooting took place in the second floor hallway.  It's difficult. It's emotional. But it's all about standing together for the kids. You could see the outpouring of love and support by how many people lined up along the sidewalk and created a human tunnel for the kids to walk through.
