The Columbine High School Massacre

   It happened thirteen years ago. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students, one teacher and then committed suicide.

   This event has fascinated me for many years now. I have read the diaries of Eric and Dylan (on the internet). The massacre was indeed a sad thing, brutal and violent. I never blamed anyone for what happened. Okay, maybe one year ago, I was blaming the people who bullied them. Maybe I also blamed the shooters 3 years ago. If you want more information, here are two sites:

   I think you can also find the journals of the two boys on the last site.

   Of course, there are many more sites, books, songs, etc dedicated to the victims; such as Cassie Bernall, Rachel Scott and so on.

   This post is written in the memory of the students:
Cassie Bernall
Steve Curnow
Corey DePooter
Kelly Fleming
Matt Kechter
Daniel Mauser
Daniel Rohrbough
Rachel Scott
Isaiah Shoels
John Tomlin
Lauren Townsend
Kyle Velasquez;
the teacher: Dave Sanders;

and last but not least, the gunmen, who were also victims of the world, of themselves and their own actions: Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris.

   May all of you rest in peace - you won't be forgotten.
