Around this time Dylan was arriving home from Outback ( yes, the single greatest mystery. ) In a couple hours Zach will call, but Dylan will be too tired to talk. That’s the last time the friends will ever speak to each other.

my guess is they never went to Outback.. no proof (autopsy, video or receipts) and no witnesses.

Side note.. I believe they went to McD's for lunch on 4/19 with Brooks Brown and Robin Anderson? Heard the Chris Morris 911 call on youtube... at the very end of the call he makes reference to E/D talking about an attack on the school, but states he didn't take them serious. I thought he had stated that initially in interviews.

Its 11:27PM in Denver, in less than 12 hours, 13 people (who are most likely sleeping at this very hour) will get gunned down

Such a weird feeling knowing their deaths were approaching the very next day.

I've got a question to people who live in Littleton or near this area. How many people are coming to the memorial these days and is it in the air still the felling that something bad has happened 19th years ago and community still pay attention or it's another ordinary day?

At this moment 19 years ago, it was 3:15 a.m. in Denver. Sunrise was exactly three hours away.

Were all thirteen of Eric and Dylan's victims sleeping soundly? Were they dreaming?

Did Eric and Dylan get any sleep that night? If so, did they dream?

As the new day dawned, 15 people had only a few hours to live. But only two of them had any awareness of what was to come.

How much thought did the victims give to the clothes that they were putting on? Did any of them have any inkling that they were getting dressed for the last time in their lives? Brushing their teeth for the last time? Eating breakfast for the last time? Driving in a car for the last time?

As they drove or walked up to the school that morning, did any of them realize that they were going to die inside that building?

I have insomina, so I'm going to try to go back to sleep. I just wanted to let everyone know that it is "just before first light" so this is around the time Dylan left and said the last words to his mom.

I work with kids and this morning all but one was hiding under the table while the other shot at them with an imaginary gun. Creeped me right out so I had them play something else.
Let's not play active shooter ok?!?

I was in college when I remember hearing about Columbine. I was in classroom at the time so remember feeling saddened and afraid but there wasn't a lot of news coverage.

I've recently become interested in learning all about Columbine again. The Las Vegas mass shooting affected me deeply so that may have triggered (no pun intended ) my re-interest in Columbine? Researching all of the mass shootings I read about all of the incidents but Columbine stands out for me.

Sue Klebolds book is very good. I highly recommend it to get the story from her unique perspective.

19 years of Columbine. Neutral

19 years of people searching for answers, digging for clues, trying to make sense out of everything that happened in the years/months/weeks leading up to the day that changed so many lives.

Over the years many questions have been answered, sad revelations have come to light, and conspiracies theories have come and gone. Yet Columbine still remains a huge puzzle that we only have a certain amount of pieces to. One day I hope we will get the full picture.

To my knowledge the Harris/Klebold court depositions are set to be released sometime in 2023. In my opinion other then the 20th Anniversary, this will be the next Columbine milestone. I wonder what we will learn from them?

Same here! The Last Vegas shooting kickstarted my interest in researching other mass shootings (it also happened on my birthday). It was the first shooting I researched quite a bit of. Didn't realize then just how invested I would be in Columbine (honestly feel like such a newbie considering I only really looked into it 18 years later).

Just requested Susan's book today from my library, ironically on the 20th. Really interested in reading it.


Also [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] it truly is incredible how much Columbine has still stayed within everyone's minds. Even though E&D wanted to make a huge impact, I still wonder if they predicted 19 (and the upcoming years) years from then, so many people would still be thinking and researching it.

Curious to see what will we learn from the court cases. Seems like 2023 is far away, but it will be here soon seeing how much time flies.

Is it bad that I requested both the Cullen book and Mein Kampf from my school library? Also, what time did school begin OTD 19yrs ago

I find it odd that even though the Las Vegas mass shooting wasn't that long ago- 6 months- it isn't really discussed anymore. Columbine is discussed and continues to be in the news every year....even 19 years later.

I wonder if LVMS will be discussed on its anniversary this year or be forgotten? It's similar to Columbine as no one knows why he did it and he also spent time amassing weapons and preparing for it. I also read that although he didn't make bombs he did plan a decoy to distract police. He also ended by suicide like at Columbine, even though it was said he had an escape plan. His suicide and crime scene photos were leaked during the investigation. So there are quite a few similarities to Columbine.

Why is Columbine so remembered after all these years when people are so quick to forget other occurrences? I started learning about the LVMS and all the other mass shootings but have stuck with and continue to learn about mostly Columbine. What holds our attention?!

Other then being "bat shit crazy" do we ever know why a mass shooter does it?

When you delve more into Columbine you do start to understand why it happened and why they did it. You don't agree with it or condone it of course...

For me, I was a senior in HS when it happened, I had an online friend who was at the school (I don't talk about that too much) and it was on the news all the time, we learned so much about not only the victims but Eric and Dylan. Also they were all relatable, Littleton was like the town I grew up in. We all wanted a teacher like Mr. Sanders and we wanted a friend like Rachel or Lauren. It was also a loss of innocence, it was also shocking and it was so close to graduation... after prom.. the boys were decent looking, smart and also seemed to have friends and love.

At this point now, they would have started and already killed Rachel Scott. (Well, 2 hours-ish later, stupid Time Zones)

Then today, the same people who snort condoms and eat tide pods are now protesting gun violence! Eric and Dylan are rolling in their graves (or, since Dylan *and possibly Eric* were cremated, blowing around their urns)

No, not yet. The shooting started around 11:18 and right now (at the time of this typing), its 9:26 in Denver

A great honour to all the victims that we still care 19 years later.

They are NOT forgotten.
