The tenth anniversary is April 16 - this year, Easter.

Columbine seems like yesterday to me, so Virginia Tech seems like ... a few hours ago. (Columbine happened at a much more critical junction of my life - the time when my adolescence was kicking into gear - so it grabbed me in a way that even bigger events, like 9/11, never did.)

Hard to believe, isn't it?

I agree I was like 14 when it happened I remember my class mates talking about it. Man it was crazy its been so much time since it happened it was before everyone had a smart phone and people used flip phones.

Ten years ago today ... wow. Seems like yesterday, even though a lot has happened since then.

Cho was one seriously screwed-up guy, wasn't he? I mean, we like to wonder whether Eric and Dylan would have done well in the real world, but Cho ... it seems highly unlikely that he ever would have been able to live a normal life. Cho was ... broken. In so many ways.

And then on Thursday we'll be marking eighteen years since Columbine ... that's another bigger wow.

And ten days after that, Eric will have been a body (or a pile of ashes, I guess) longer than he was a boy.

At the end of this year it will have been five years since Sandy Hook.

Time flies, doesn't it?

How best to mark this day? Light a candle?

I haven't watched Richard McBeef in years. But I'm watching it now. It holds up better than you'd think.

Cannot believe it was ten years ago. Ten years ago. (moment of silence)

Cho, Elliot Rodger, Adam Lanza, Eric Harris, and the other all have their own stories, but the main thing is people need to accept those who are different.

Could they have been saved?Could the massacre have been prevented we will never know?

I am not sure if Cho could have been saved. Maybe if he got some help but people do not accept adults with autism, I mean look at Elliot he tried to get people to help him on the internet and people always made fun of him and mocked him, he was virgin and no girl ever had sex with him he was depressed and went to college all those and still women never gave him attention, if only women gave him a chance...

RIP to all who died and sympathy to their families and friends on a sad, hard day for them.
