On Tuesday, April 20th, 1999, the community of Littleton, Colorado, as well as the rest of the world, was shocked and numb as we all experienced a horrifying school shooting at Columbine High School. The killers, Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, stalked through their school and fired off rounds of bullets that injured many and killed twelve students and one teacher. In the end, Eric and Dylan were found dead in the library, along with ten of their victims.
Hatred and disgust was, and still is, felt toward Eric and Dylan for taking the lives of thirteen people. Eric and Dylan's families were caught in the crossfire, being blamed and accused for their sons' decisions. I am one of the few who honestly and truly care for Eric, Dylan, and their families. Having contact with a few of Dylan's old friends, I feel as if I had known him myself.
We all want answers that may never be answered. We are all searching for a little truth.
There is no excuse whatsoever for what Dylan did. It was wrong, horrible, and disgusting. No one should take away the lives of innocent people for any reasons they may have. Dylan was WRONG for doing what he did. My heart is with the victims and their families, along with Dylan and Eric's parents and siblings. I hope that one day, peace will finally come to them all. This situation should have never happened.
This website has been up since Fall of '99, and has recently caught the attention of many, many people. Dylan's mother has thanked me for having the website for Dylan, per correspondence through a letter. I am glad that she appreciates the work that i've done for his website, and I am happy that I have kept the website up for a few years now.
My entire purpose for this site is to educate people on Dylan Klebold, as well as inspire and teach that violence is not always the answer, and that people get hurt by our actions from day to day. This site was created out of caring and love, along with a promise to do all that I can to keep Dylan's memory alive. I do not condone or respect Dylan for what he did, but he does deserve to be remembered along with the other people who lost their lives that day. My hope is that through this website, people will stop the hatred and take a look inside themselves for what lies beneath. We are all guilty of at least one thing, even if we do not ever admit to it.
We must stop the hate. We must take action.
