Kind of weird to see Sue Klebold tell the same story in so many places.

And it's really annoying to hear the clinking of silverware and the gasps from the crowd.

Some notes from the video:

* 6 suicides in one Fire Dept from effects of 4/20

* What she would have done differently before 4/20 is to ‘shut up and listen’ to Dylan more.

* She takes questions 29 minutes into the presentation.

*Personal therapy, medication, helped Sue move on. Depositions 2003 – anxiety disorder, panic attacks started. She got therapy, medication and it passed until 2 years later in 2005 when she started speaking publicly. She came through that. She understood what it was like to have a ‘malfunctioning mind’.

*Guns – greatest risk factor - 76% suicide with gun.

*Nobody should be surprised when shootings happen because people are human and we are all quite vunerable.

*Research shows that if kids are allowed to talk about suicide safely it helps them and it saves lives.

*When Sue wrote her book, Tom and Byron made her promise not to make their lives public. Most people who survive something horrible like Columbine do not want to be exposed, they don’t want to relive it, they don’t want to be associated with it.

*Marriage – lasted 43 years. Marriage ended in 2014. Tom and her are still friends.

*At 43:00, Sue takes a question from a guy who related to Dylan. Interesting to hear his story.

*Piece of advice that Sue recommends: Tell me something about yourself that no one understands but that causes you pain. Then the only thing you say is ‘tell me more’.

*57:30 Question from someone who knew Sue/Tom and Byron from years ago.

Thanks for sharing this. It was very interesting to listen to her talk about a few little things I had never heard before. Also, the dream she said she had about Dylan.... Shocked

I found Sue Klebold to be a bit offputting here. She was a bit too cheery at the beginning, and I don't think she realized how strange that dream was.

Thank you.

I've just started watching the vid (probably won't watch the entire thing today), but God that's cruel how Dylan even went to the length of putting on a performance and measuring his "would be" dorm room in front of Sue to "ensure he got the bigger dorm."

I watched this the other day and noted the suicides for the fire department linked to the case.

Makes you wonder what it looked like inside & how well those kids did not just to survive the incident but to come through having those scenes etched into their memory.

Hi All!

I have but one question. Will Sue Klebold be giving a contribution from the 'earnings' of her thoughts and words to the upkeep of the final resting places of those who died and mental health of the individuals who survived because of the heinous and selfish acts of her child??

Technically, yes. I teach mental health classes and her funds from the book go towards a grant so I get a small amount of money to teach them. All her book proceeds go to NAMI

Then I hereby apologise for my glib comment above. I was being judgemental. I am glad that the money is being used for something positive and I commend you for the work you are doing addressing the issue of mental health.
