School Violence..Stir Up Old Memories??

I read an article on CNN about Columbine survivors having a hard time when they hear this news, how it brings back all the memories. Understandable, it does for me too. I was not at Columbine that day, but a friend of mine knew Rachel Scott and I told her (not realizing it until the words came out of my mouth) that I told her that she was dead. It haunts me to this day reading those two words I never thought would I impact my life the way it did. I heard Rachel's brother's own story and just can't imagine the terror anyone who survives this type of massacre goes through every time it happens again.

But does anyone else get this way? It always goes back to Columbine and it doesn't help they talk about it whenever a shooting happens. I wonder if this will ever go away...I didn't know anyone, but it's impacted my life.

Actually, when I hear of a school shooting the first thing I think of is Kent State..not quite the same thing but a school shooting all the same. Then I think about Columbine. So yes, it does stir up old memories

I always think of Columbine. Was that the first mass school shooting? Guess that's why people think of it.

No, it wasn't. It had the largest number of victims for a U.S. event of that type (Dunblane was worse and prior iirc) at the time. It's since been eclipsed, obviously.
