I’ve been interested since day 1. When I was 8, a lot of horrible fucking shit happened to me in my life, and I had a dream of a very tall, blonde haired guy who was leading me away from it. Later, literally the next year, that blonde haired boy was on my television screen, being labelled a murderer. I know, I was 9, but I felt this intense connection and sadness for his death. I began to research ,but not much was there yet. Not anything with enough sustenance anyway. So I kept looking, searching, hoping. Then all of a sudden a couple years later all this information flooded the internet and magazines, so I just kept up with it.
thanks for asking btw :)
"Goodbye, sorry to everyone … I just can’t take it … all the thoughts … too many … make my head twist … I must have happiness, love, peace. Goodbye"
- Dylan Klebold
Although I am very interested in who Eric and Dylan were, (obviously), am I the only one who finds it absolutely heart breaking that a man who lost his son has to deal with people telling him he deserved to be shot and killed? Who does that… Who honestly does that!? I have no words. That is not trolling, that is being cruel and insensitive towards their grief and pain… This makes my head rage and my heart hurt.
And the binge continues with my love and our boys
Eric and Dylan’s pages in the Columbine yearbook.
"Dad, why are you filming this?" he (Dylan) asks. Then he (Tom Klebold) laughs and says, "Well, someday I’ll watch it again, and I’ll wonder what I was thinking".
Greg Zanis of Illinois, is the man who constructed the crosses for the Aurora Theater Shooting Memorial in Aurora, Colorado.
Zanis, also constructed the crosses of the victims of Columbine on Rebel Hill, 15 in total, one for each of the shooters and the victims. Angered by the fact that Zanis made a cross for Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, Brian Rohrbough, whose son Daniel died in the shooting, tore both shooters crosses from the ground and chopped them up himself after authorities refused to do so. After finding out what he did, Zanis took all the crosses he made for the victims home, and a memorial was erected in Chapel Hill Cemetery in Littleton.
Mourners stand on Rebel Hill with all 15 original crosses before Eric and Dylan’s were taken down.
"The entire school was shut down and remodeled. The cafeteria had the floor taken out to be re-tiled. The hallways the boys walked down were dry walled sealing off any holes of ricocheted bullets that hit the wall, and re-tiled. The entrance stairs to the cafeteria were stripped of their carpet, cleaned of the blood where Anne-Marie Hochhalter was injured and completely tiled. The science room where Dave Sanders took his last breath was gutted and remodeled. The library, where most of the massacre occurred was completely demolished after police investigations ceased. In place of the library now stands a two story atrium, with pictures of trees and columbines. The lockers are still intact, and the ones who housed the belongings of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold still stand."
