Columbine, 10 years later

Today is the 10th anniversary for the Columbine massacre and the city is once again remembering the individuals who were lost and the lives that were changed so long ago. There was a candle light vigil last night and I'm sure that there are hoards of people streaming in and out of the memorial. I visited there over the summer, if you would like to see it (the memorial) click here. It's hard to believe that it has been ten years already, it seems like it was yesterday. I remember, I was living in Arizona at the time but was visiting Denver when the shooting happened. The restaurant that I worked for let me pick up shifts while I was in town and I remember all of us standing in front of the TV in total shock. We stood there and watched as those kids ran from the school and wondered when the police were going to go in. We watched wondering if there were kids that were still alive, waiting to be rescued, while the police did sweeps of the building for bombs. It was so surreal and unbelievable. To think that it was happening only a few miles away. To this day, every time I drive by the high school I have those pictures in my mind. April 20, 1999 is a day that many people will never forget. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families haunted by that day. To learn more about some of the survivors of that day click here. To watch a video click here.


  1. I can't believe it's already been ten years. It is still etched in my mind, as if it was just the other day. My daughter was still in high school at the the time and it all was so devastating when it happened.

  2. I saw this. Geez, ten years. Can hardly believe it.
