Do you think you would've had the strength to return to school for the next school year following the shooting? Would it make a difference if you did or didn't witness anything? Or if you were injured or not?

Furthermore, who did return?

Hard to say. I think if I would have been shot/injured or had seen people shot and or die I would not have wanted to go back.

If I knew any of the people shot/killed it would have also been hard.

I get kind of wrapped up in tragedy in my own life...I think if I attended Columbine when it happened if given the option I would rather continue school somewhere else.

Majority of people at the school returned. Kids went to Chatfield for the rest of the year. Some like Brooks Brown and other "friends of the shooters" were not allowed to return at all.

I honestly don't think I would have wanted to, I feel it would have been too painful. But to your question, I would add that I think it would definitely have made a difference to me if I did or did not actually witness anything.

Speaking of, is there a 2000 Columbine yearbook availabe online?

Would be interesting to see who returned to Columbine for the 1999-2000 schoolyear.

I don't really like to sit on the fence with responses but I don't know with this one. I'd like to think I would have gone back but I guess it's hard to say unless you were there.

I wonder if many kids wanted to go back but their parents wouldn't let them, or if kids didn't want to go back but their parents made them? Probably not many (if any) of the latter but I suspect quite a few of the former.

I'd still return. My coping/mourning method would be to be at the scene of the crime. If I ran away from it would give me depression, hiding away from the elephant in the room. Eventually I would have to face it, and, I think I could face it at that span of time as opposed to some who might've needed a couple of years to grasp the strength to.

from what I can remember I think Nicole Nowlen returned? and Patrick? a few were extremely vocal about returning and not letting it stop them from moving on.

I should have mentioned it before but I originally brought this up after I read an article about Austin Eubanks being so traumatized after watching his best friend Corey die right next to him that he chose to be home school and turned to drugs to forget

I would never go back.  I would attempt to move forward and not want to see that school ever again.

I would probably go back, but I feel like my parents wouldn't of let me.
