First Line Friday is brought to you by Hoarding Books.
Last week my line came from Columbine by Dave Cullen. I shared my personal experience both as a student then, and a teacher now. This week I am delving into a third perspective - that of a mother who has now spent nineteen years living with the fact that her son was a murderer.
"I began writing about the experience of Columbine almost from the moment it happened, because writing about my son's monstrous behavior, the loss of innocent lives, and his suicide was one of the ways I coped with the tragedy."
I was skeptical when I first heard this book was coming out, but upon learning of Klebold's plans to donate all profits from the sale of the book to mental health charities, I decided to give it a try.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
