    It boggles my mind that Columbine was 10 years ago.

    Agreed with this--I didn't really understand the complete enormity of the situation right when it happened, but as more and more came out about it, it became much more apparent that this even was going to be one of those "where were you" events, where you tell your kids someday. My father equated it to the JFK assassination, and he could tell me exactly where he was when he heard about that.

    Crazy to think Columbine was less than 1/3 of the fatalities that were eventually seen at Virginia Tech. Absolutely horrible...

    I remember where I was for Oklahoma City, TWA 800, Chris Farley's death, 9/11, Columbia, and Pete Taylor.
