April 20th.

It’s sad to see this day is known for anything but what happened 12 years ago. Today is the anniversary for the Columbine shooting that took 13 lives.

I was 11, and I'll never forget looking at the front of the newspaper and seeing the 13 pictures. And to this day, I hate hearing the song, "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan because while I was looking at the newspaper, that song came on the radio, and it was edited with people screaming and crying after the shooting. So now everytime I hear that song, I'm brought back to that day I was in my room reading the newspaper, which is why I change the station when it comes on.

Never forget April 20, 1999. <3
