For most of us, April 20, 1999, was a memorable day.

Whether you were in Colorado that day or not, but especially if

you were, you probably remember watching the tragedy at Columbine

High School in Littleton unfold on TV as the death toll rose with

the number of questions about what happened.

Still today, news about Columbine makes the front page of major

metropolitan newspapers and the tragedy appears on lists of school

violence across the country.

For many, the memory of first hearing about Columbine is more

vivid than today’s lunch. Almost every person who was in high

school in Colorado can tell you where he or she was and what he or

she was doing at the time of the shooting.

This tragedy is far hotline from history, especially for schools

like CSU, where so many students were directly affected by the

shootings.

Today we take time to remember those lost and those whose lives

have been affected – however tangentially or directly – by the

tragedy five years ago.
