We Are Columbine

10 years ago today.
This is a "where were you when" moment that sticks out in mind like it was yesterday.
10 years ago I had a satellite dish (one of the big ones). My network stations were out of Littleton, CO. I saw it all. It was on live not long after the first shot was fired. Before it made it to any of the big news stations. It was on 24 hours a day for 3 days straight. I could not stop watching. I took a sick day from work. I sent money to a victim's fund. It was all consuming.
Today I remember.

Have you ever read the book She Said Yes? It is soo good. About a girl who was shot, if you want to read it I have it! It might make you cry, but very touching.

I'm about 1/2 way through the new Columbine book (can't remember the author, but it just came out in the past week). It's REALLY good - goes into detail about the 2 shooters and how the media had pretty much everything wrong about them.
