Eleven Years Ago
we were rocked by the tragedy at Columbine.
The initial reporting, and the "common knowledge" about what happened there was almost entirely wrong.
We know that now because of the ground breaking, ferociously well written book by Dave Cullen: COLUMBINE.
I think COLUMBINE is one of the most important books of the decade. I think it should be required reading for every teacher, school administrator, and reporter in the country.
It's available in paperback now with new material including a 12-page afterword: "Forgiveness." with updates on three victims in very different places eleven years later, and the central role forgiveness played in their recovery.
You owe it to yourself to read it.
