PostSubject: Columbine Reunions   Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:45 pm

Is anyone aware if there have been any class reunions especially the years affected by the shooting? Such as the seniors at the time (Lauren's friends, Isiah's friends and Eric and Dylan's friends) reuniting and if they do, I wonder what they talk about. It'd be interesting to see if they do reunions and what they chat about.

Their 20 year reunion is coming up for the class of 1999. I’m sure they have but probably low key.

It had to have strained so many friendships, those who were friends with E&D but also friends with those they killed or injured.

Is the class of 1999 the year they left school? Just wondering as we didn't use a term like that when we left school as I'm from the UK. It's probably became a thing now as we have kids at nursery (kindergarten in the USA) graduating from nursery before they go into the next stage of their schooling.

In my country we use the following standard for graduating seniors ''start of senior school year/end of senior school year''. For example, Eric and Dylan, had they graduated, would have been ''Class of 1998/1999'' under this standard.

Yes. 1999 was the year they graduated high school. Then after that you choose if you want to go to college etc...

In the US the class of 1998 would have graduated when E&D were juniors.

It got me thinking because of this Reunion short film that was made about what the reunion could have looked like had it gone ahead without the fact the shooting had happened. I will say it made me cry so tissues will need to be on hand. Link below to it on YouTube if you've not seen it.

I can't even begin to imagine the kind of feelings they'd have about a class reunion.

There will be a raw multi part documentary series for the 20th anniversary. I'm not sure who's producing it but I know that Austin Eubanks will be participating, he said so in an interview. He believes that there is value in reuniting people who've experienced it especially with these new mass shootings so they can reach out to these people in need. Most notable Columbine survivors are empathetic people. I'm curious how it'll play out.

That's really interesting. Looking forward to seeing what the end product is.


Otherwise, I don't see much chance of E&D's friends participating in a reunion. After the tragedy they were isolated from the school and weren't allowed to return. There was a lot of bitterness there for them then because of that, and just the fact that their friends committed such an awful act there. They've probably spent years moving on, I doubt they'd consider returning for a reunion. On the other hand, those who were injured that day, or those who weren't directly affiliated with E&D but experienced the tragedy, have all the more reason to come back. Unity would show how they've moved on but still remember the victims, and would probably play a part in the bigger picture of their healing process. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a reunion.

E & D's circle of friends didn't seem too likely to be reunion attendees with or without 4/20, but I agree.. too much pressure and negative associations to E & D. Most of their associates have vanished from social media or life in general and I take that as a concerted effort to move on and not be identified with the killers or face the headaches.

Few doubts the reunion will be a big and very positive turnout, the school and community rallied behind each other and seemed determined to not let 4/20 be their legacy.

Brooks Brown was asked about this in his Reddit AMA.
