Columbine

The senseless shootings at Columbine High School (April 20,1999) in Colorado, touched the community and the nation with shock and disbelief. A permanent public memorial near the high school was established ( in 2007) to recognize and honor those innocent victims.

Lovely tribute to such a violent act. It seems like it was just yesterday. It took a long time for a memorial to be erected but I'm glad its finally up. I like the quotes placed on the wall.

I remember it - and, unfortunately, similar events such as Virginia Tech - all too well.
