•, Dennis Cimino with J
Called "the iconic photograph" of the Sandy Hook school massacre and attributed to the Newtown Bee Associate Editor, Shannon Hicks,  it was transmitted around the world and created an indelible impression of police leading students to safety away from the crime scene.

According to TIME, "At 10:09 am, 10 minutes after she climbed out of her vehicle, she snapped the shutter on an elementary school class being led out of the school by two Connecticut State Police officers.

'I knew that, coming out of the building — as terrified as they were — those children were safe,' Hicks said, of the photograph soon to grace the front pages of newspapers, magazines, and nearly every breaking news website around the world. 'I just felt that it was an important moment.'"
