PostSubject: Dylan Klebold's Cross: Letter content?   Wed Jun 26, 2013 2:08 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows what the long letter on Dylan's cross said.  And also, other notes on the actual cross itself.
It seemed like the old form may have had a thread on this but wanted to revisit.  Especially interested in that long, detailed letter!

Just following up to this with a better picture of the letter.  I'm surmissing this was written by a xtian as I'm able to make out bits of it.

 "He gave you life", "For what you could have been",  "He is very real"

- Why
- Shame on you Dylan
- How can anyone forgive you?

I have a feeling he'd get a good laugh out of all these.

The writing on the wood is pretty easy to make out. However, I'm wondering about the long letter attached to the cross.

Yes, I agree that he and Eric would be rolling their eyes and laughing at all the xtian propoganda. It would just be more of a turn off to them.

I also agree that E/D would be rolling their eyes about some of the comments. But I liked how some people actually decided to write nice things about them. I also thought it was interesting how on Eric's cross someone had wrote your lives were long lost way before this ever happened and you died over a year ago and no one noticed.

I thought that was very moving, too. The photo of Tom Mauser standing next to Dylan's cross is very heartbreaking, also.

Enlarging the letter in my photo-editing program gave me a few words to work from, but no more. I could tentatively make out the following fragments: family and those who knew you, He gave you life, we plant, that your choices were wrong, hate over love, He has (..) your choice, fly free now and you can, He grants me, He takes those who believe. It indeed sounds to me like a letter written by a Christian.

Wow someone crossed out "Prayers for your family"
Also someone had a fondness for the words "Evil Bastard" (It's on there 3 times)

I know we touched upon this topic quite recently but whenever I see these pictures I still can't believe they put them up alongside their victims.

I think the guy said at the time who did it was unknown... Don't hold me to this I can just be remembering wrong.

Are you saying that the guy who put up the crosses (Greg Zanis) didn't know when he put the crosses up who the killers were? Because he did. He intentionally used a different style font on Dylan and Eric's crosses.

I'm said this before but it's being discussed again so  I have to say that I'm glad they put them up. I know some people here hate them and disagree but as I've already explained I see them as victims too (only in a different sense) and I think their crosses deserved to be there. Not all the victim's families were enraged and disgusted about it. It was only two families that destroyed the crosses and trees, three is you count Rich Petrone.If  E or D were my child,I would have felt touched and yes I would have wanted them to be represented there.And I don't feel that I would be a horrible person for wanting that.I know at least Dylan's parents wanted his cross there and were hurt when it was destroyed and I don't believe they were in the wrong for that.This has all been many years ago now and some of the parents who were angry enough to do this seemed to have softened a bit in their anger so I don't know what they feel about their actions in doing that today.They might still feel glad they did it,they might think they could have handled it differently.It could go either way.

The lady writing evil bastard on the cross was later arrested herself for assault. Just a little side note.

These people really had absolutely no right touching Dylan and Eric's crosses. It was not their property to rip out of the ground, chop up and destroy. I am surprised they got away with doing it. Also, these fools were in such a huff to hurry up and destroy 2 of the trees planted that they destroyed the wrong damn trees. The trees they chopped all up to shit were not even the ones that represented Dylan and Eric. Idiots.

I can understand why these people wanted to destroy the crosses and trees but I will always wish that they hadn't ,for E and D's families sakes, if nothing else. Kyle's dad even said when they destroyed the trees that "Do we put up memorials for Hitler's Mom and Dad ?" which still makes me wince even today when I think of it.

Somebody knows why the crosses are burned from the top?
