COLUMBINE SLAUGHTER STILL IN ALL MINDS AFTER TEN YEARS 20 APRIL 1999 – 20 APRIL 2009
Have been fulfilled 10 years of the Columbine slaughter, the time has passed, and how many questions have remained unanswered, for family, friends, inner circle and the whole world in general.
We could have prevented what happened? The parents of those kids who committed the massacre did not realize that their children were not in their right mind? The possession of a weapon will be the culprit?
There is someone responsible for all this in addition to Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, who were the ones who killed their comrades, when the April 20, 1999, came armed with two guns (one cut), a Hi-Point 995 carbine semi-automatic 9 mm, a Tech 9 semiautomatic pistol caliber 9 mm, several explosive devices and a homemade bomb consisting of a propane tank, 9 kilograms, school attended, the Columbine High School in Jefferson County in Colorado.
When they entered and shot everyone in the cafeteria and library, killing 13 people (12 students and one teacher) and wounding 24 people before committing suicide.
With flags at half-up marks the tenth anniversary of the Columbine tragedy, 13 bells in remembrance of those killed were ringing at the Congress state, whose names were read by a circle of volunteers.
The director of the institution, Frank DeAngelis, who promised to remain in office until all preschool students who were on the attack they graduate, was among those attending the ceremony Monday.
Tom Mauser, who lost her son Daniel for 15 years in the shooting, he addressed the audience to tell the “pain and trauma” still feel that all those directly affected by the tragedy.
“While remember this day, not dwell on the pain and trauma. But do not ignore the fact that it happened there and the pain and the trauma is still there for some people,” said the father in the act of Littleton.
Have passed and the pain remains intact for many, the memory is indelible, has left standing in those who suffered a loss that day, the wounded and those who belong to that community.
Similar developments have again occur in United States and other countries, one wonders by when and what can be done to prevent such acts and whether there is any way to prevent them.
A remaind for all who died that day, a candle lit in his memory, a reminder not to forget, and not repeat the same story.
