This Columbine affair is really addictive. Been delving into this for only a week now. It reads like a mashup between a Degrassi episode and a Shakespeare play. It's heart-rending, gut-wrenching, spine-tingling, tear-inducing.

Also, noting how many instances of ''irony and foreshadowing'' there is, I'm in disbelief over it all. It's just too much.

It's also extremely, extremely strange and intertwined and karmic in so many ways. Did anybody see just how Rachel Scott's diary matches Dylan's in certain ways???? I shudder. Many more instances too.

Yeah, I also thought that. Didnt she wrote one year prior to the shooting, that she knew that she was going to die and called it a homicide?

Yes Rachel believed the 98-99 school year would be her last and said something along the lines of would you walk with me through these hallways of this tragedy. It's also ironic that on the morning of April 20th she might have drew a picture with two eyes and 13 tears under it.

First of all, I'm your new best friend simply because you mentioned Degrassi.

Secondly, you are so right. It is incredibly easy to let Columbine take over your life.

There's that, her sense of foreboding, her poem about death (that includes imagery of a gun). But there is also her feeling of being burdened, down and rejected by other people that has parallels to Dylan's diary. She is also talking about ''starting a chain reaction'' like Eric, but it's a chain reaction for good.

Hallways, right. It's the same imagery, that's incredible! As tough their minds were connected at a deep level, even if bent on different purposes.

Are there available transcripts of Rachel's diary out there? I've seen the book The Journals of Rachel Scott, but I think it's a diluted source.

Oh! Wow, somehow each time I've ever looked and clicked on her journal I never realized that you could scroll to get past the cover picture. ^_^
