We had a comprehensive discussion on the last forum, so I wanted to start one here. List all the writings you know of from the crosses. I'll start out with a few:

Dylan:

I'm sorry we failed you. May God have mercy on your soul
HATE BREEDS HATE
Shame on you Dylan!
Jesus will forgive
Why?
Hate kills the soul
Our love is with you
How can anyone forgive you? Somebody answered: Through Jesus Christ, that's how!
NO ONE IS TO BLAME
Evil Bastard
Forgive but never forget
No more pain

Eric:

How can we ever forgive you?
You died over a year ago...and no one noticed.
Your lives were lost long before this ever happened.
He is still God's child and is loved
You also deserve our compassion

Thankyou so much for making this thread. I've been wanting to know what was written on their crosses. And I'm glad there were people who wrote positive comments.

Thank you!
It's nice/weird to see they're not all hateful comments
These two are curious though:
You died over a year ago...and no one noticed.
Your lives were lost long before this ever happened.

Do we know who wrote them?

Nope, the second one is from a Huffington Post article if I remember correctly. The first one is from another misc article somebody posted on the old forum (if anyone knows please post!).

I think the first one is the most poignant quote written on any of the crosses. On a side note, I asked Brooks Brown if he wrote anything on the crosses and he didn't answer Sad

I thought the comment your lives were long lost before this ever happened was interesting and really sad. In the aftermath it seemed that Eric and Dylan's friends weren't really welcomed in certain places and people would shun them so maybe he decided not to visit.

More or less.

He mentions that the jocks were threatening to gang together and jump him after a funeral ceremony or something.

There was a video on the internet of Dylan and Eric's crosses being removed and thrown into the back of a truck to be taken to be destroyed. The video is no longer available, but luckily we were able to get screenshots of this being done. It's not as good as having the video, but better than nothing. Very Happy

She may have, yes. I got them from her and I have also posted them on Ivan's and my Columbine facebook page.

Evidently someone who knew about Dylan's suffering beforehand. Interesting, because I thought Dylan kept his sadness to himself. Maybe it's just a coincidence. How many people really knew about the extent of Dylan's depression?

I could be wrong but maybe it was Zach Heckler. I know their friends weren't really welcomed in certain places but perhaps that didn't stop him from visiting. He and Dylan often talked about their depression over the phone and I believe they remained close friends even when he started seeing Devon.
