I am having such a hard time believing that it has already been seven years. My elementry school was down the street... I can remember that day sooooo vividly! I was in fourth grade and we were at lunch when it happened, the prinipal came in and told us that there would be no recess but he didn't tell us why. We all thought that there was like a convicted felon on the loose in the area. Turned out that they didn't want us outside due to the fact that they were afraid of a possible shootout between the police and Dylan and Eric (geez can you believe that I remember those names!)... At the time they didn't know that they had commited suicide. They placed the school under lockdown and told us what had happened. We all cried because almost everyone knew someone who went there, but I cried for a different reason... What can cause so much anguish that you must go off and masacare your fellow classmates, and teachers? We were sent home early, and my mom took me to the store... Everyone there was talking about what had just happened. At the time my mom was actually getting her hair done, and she saw it on tv. We went home, and I went to my room and cried. When my dad came home we finally had a talk about how people can simply murder another person. A couple of years later after 9/11 I was really upset (as was everyone else) and my dad and I had another one of THOSE talks. My mom and dad actually think that I am an old soul (my old piano teacher told my mom that was there to teach them) as I am so sensitive to other people, always have been.
Please take a minute to remmeber these lives that were cut so short in such a violent matter. Also please pray for the souls of Eric and Dylan Kleebald, I believe that maybe if they had gotten the proper help for their depression that this whole situation could've been avoided.

And with yesterday being the 10th Anniversary of this horrific occurrence, let's hope that the future holds a much better fate for any other individuals who ever find themselves caught up in this type of situation.

I have to stop now as it's getting to me... This wasn't something that I just watched on TV. At my grade school we were locked down and could hear the cop cars whizzing by. I know people who were in the cafeteria and library as the shooting took place. Some ran for their life, some played dead (probably what I'd do). For me Columbine isn't just another school shooting, it's very real to me.
