Default thoughts on the 5'th aniversary of columbine....

Hey guys... this is a bit off topic and a bit more serious/sappy than the usual stuff that goes on in here.

As everyone knows and is probably INCREDIBLY sick of hearing about by now, it's the 5'th aniversary of the columbine ickyness today, some wierd stuff going on in my life lately and I've been thinking about the whole Columbine thing lately. Just wondering what everyones thoughts were. What were you all doing when it happened? Seen any changes in the world since then? in yourselves?

Me? I was a 15 year old sophomore at Chatfield high school (a few miles from columbine) when the whole thing went down, and I had alot of friends at Columbine, I was effing worried. It was wierd because I had met Eric and Dylan a few times in passing, they seemed nice, I was pretty suprised. I saw a huge wave of intolerance pass through Littleton for about a year, but I think in recent years high school age kids have gotten alot more tolerant and accepting, but that's just me. Curious to see what others have to say....

There are a lot of things that make me upset hearing about Columbine and the victims parents and the way they are just not able to "let it go" knowing and wanting answers isnt going to bring there kids back to life they are gone, remember them celebrate their short lifes that they lived. It may sound cruel but it gets to the point where enough is enough, its been 5 years and in that time we have learned that the polive dept. messed up, they messed up big time! DPD wanted to go in as soon as they arrived but were held back by jeffco. There are only so many questions that have answers, with this it just happened there isnt much more to be said. Why did they do it? who knows but they did, its done. Hopefully nothing like this will happen again. But I dont think anything has really been done to prevent it.

I believe Kids in Littleton acted somewhat different for awhile, but I think it has gotten back to the way it was, there are groups and Littleton is just like any other place where kids are one or the other, rich or not, good at sports or not, good looking or not.
and ultametely popular or not.

I was a Junior at the time, my girlfriend went to Columbine along with tons of my friends, I remember it like it was yesterday. I lived right behind Columbine, I remember hearing the car bomb Eric had rigged in his car explode that afternoon it shook my house, cover fire being shot hours after the shooters had died. Not fun at all, couldnt call cell phones because everyone was trying to use them, all the networks were down. I didnt get in contact with my girlfriend till late that night and waiting not knowing if she was ok or not really was hard. News reports had said there could be as many as 30+ killed!

I played soccer with Eric, never would have struck me to be the type to pull something like that. Very nice kid well spoken, but I didnt keep in contact with him in throughout highschool though, so he may have just went downhill from that point. Oh well it caused me to change things in my life, even to this day, I try to make the kids that I come in contact with that look like they are kinda struggling with highschool life know that life isnt over and highschool really isnt the best years in your life. As it was said by Trey Parker it alwasy seems like the cool kids in highschool after highschool end up finding average jobs in littleton, where as the dorky ones go on to do really fun and cool things.
