10 years

I cannot believe it has been 10 years since Columbine. I remember that afternoon so vividly. I was on the family computer, playing tomb raider (I or II, can't can't remember which), and eating freshly baked oatmeal cookies. I hadn't even heard anything about it until my dad came home from work and we put the tv to watch.

my mum was most upset by the kid who was just laying there on the sidewalk while everyone ran past. she said that no-one would have been able to restrain her if that had been one of her children. I can picture it so well, my mum fighting her way through the police blockade to scoop me off the sidewalk. that has always stayed with me.
