As of today (April 16), it has been thirteen years since the Virginia Tech massacre.

In a couple of years, the kids born on the day of the Virginia Tech shooting will be as old as Eric and Dylan's youngest victims. That's how much time has passed.

Why do all these mass tragedies seem to happen happen in April?

Honestly it's just our confirmation bias at work. We know about a big tragedy in April, so we look for more tragedies that happened in the same month because it makes it all seem more significant than it actually is. Obviously terrible things happen in other months too.

Part of it is also due to the fact that a lot of these killers are copying each other. Timothy McVeigh bombed the Murrah Building two year to the day of Waco on purpose. It's often speculated Eric and Dylan wanted their attack to happen on the 19th as an homage to McVeigh - at the very least they wanted to get it done before school ended. In turn I imagine Robert Steinhauser and Seung-Hui Cho may have chosen April as the date of their attacks as an homage to Eric and Dylan.

But just for morbid fun...

April 12th, marking 159 years since the beginning of the American Civil War.
April 15th, marking 7 years since the Boston Marathon attacks (incidentally terrorist attacks in Iraq killed 75 on the same day)
April 17th, marking 45 years since the start of Khmer Rogue rule in Cambodia, kicking off a genocide that would claim two million lives.
April 18th, marking 114 years since the Great San Francisco earthquake of 1906, which killed over three thousand.
April 26th, marking 34 years since the Chernobyl disaster.
April 29th, marking 28 years since the start of the Rodney King Riots.
April 30th, marking 45 years since the Fall of Saigon, ending the Vietnam War in a humiliating defeat for the United States.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Robert doing shooting in last day of exams, 26 April. He don't have another chance after that day.

Because he already had guns for months I think he wanted that amount teachers were in school in during shooting and he just wait his last chance of doing his actions.

Didn't Elliot Rodger's shooting happen in May too? I remember it was one of the first things we followed here on the forum. The first being the Boston bombing. The forum was only like 1 month old when the Boston bombing happened. The forum is now 7 years old.

Side note: I wonder if this forum has been around longer than Danny's was?

Danny made his forum in 2005, so it lasted 7 years in total. It didn't have any real activity for years though.
