Columbine: it was 20 years ago today


It’s been 20 years. I’m not sure I have anything new to say.

On April 20, 1999, at 11:19am MDT, the world changed.

As the anniversary has approached I’ve tried to think what I want to say about that day and those that followed. I’ve written about it a number of times over the past two decades, and honestly I’m not sure I have much to add.

Instead, let me briefly link you to those pieces, and encourage you especially to have a look at “Columbine: the Power of Symbols.” It may be the best thing I ever wrote, and it was certainly the most difficult and painful.

If I do think of anything else I’ll let you know.
