Speaking of families, in the "13 Families" doc one of the younger sisters of one of the victims (I can't remember off the top of my head which one) says the ONE question she dreads when meeting someone is "how many brothers do you have?"  She says she either says two older brothers as if her brother is still alive and hopes they don't ask more questions, or she just says she has one. Sad

OUCH! Right in the feels with that one. Sad You can imagine she would feel somewhat guilty by saying that she only had one.

My heart has been so badly broken and mended again. Stronger than ever because of its dreadful wounds that I thought it could never break again. But at the sight of his face, at the knowledge that he was taking his leave forever, beyond death, it shattered.

Not to mention Devon again LOL, but if I remember correctly, the spoken word piece I shared via youtube here on the board, she talks about that. How it has screwed with her intimacy issues.

Nate, Brooks and Robyn are parents, I wonder when they get older if they are going to feel over protective or REALLY monitor who their kids are friends with.


Off topic but since you mentioned they're now parents, I saw pictures of Byrons kids the other day and it broke. my. heart. They will never meet their uncle. They will one day have to learn about what he did. How devastating.

The family has so many good memories of Dylan and he's remembered for an hour of his life?

I wonder how they will broach the topic, I don't know if they have Byron's last name or his wife's but when they get older surely they will learn about Columbine...

No way can they keep it from them. The last name is so unique, even if they make their last names hyphenated or give them the wife's last name, they will find out. It's inevitable. I'm sure when the time comes they will have mulled it over for a long time, so they will know what they feel is the best way to bring it up.

I agree. Kevin has it easier, Harris is pretty generic and I have a feeling they don't really talk about Eric.

Speaking of families, in the "13 Families" doc one of the younger sisters of one of the victims (I can't remember off the top of my head which one) says the ONE question she dreads when meeting someone is "how many brothers do you have?"  She says she either says two older brothers as if her brother is still alive and hopes they don't ask more questions, or she just says she has one. Sad

That's sad Sad

If they ask questions it just opens so many open wounds, and if you don't know, it's such an innocent question, small talk type stuff.

Just to add- I think it was Ashley Tomlin, John's younger sister.

Daniel Mauser‘s dad says he hates that question too...well he hates the how many kids do you have question.  I can’t imagine being in any of the victims families shoes and the dread they must feel every time they meet someone new, hoping someone doesn’t recognize their last name or ask questions that remind them of their loss all over again.

Especially considering most of them have generally stayed in the Littleton/Jefferson County area where a majority of their family/friends/supporters are. It is probably important for them to keep ties to the community, but at the same time people will probably know who they are just by their name.

AGREED! Just think how hard would it be to talk to someone who had been through something so horrible. When even the smallest, simplest questions such as asking if they had a brother or sister could be so hurtful. Sad
