I distinctly remember four news events before the age of ten.
- The murder of JonBenét Ramsey
- The death of Princess Diana
- The Columbine High School massacre
- And 9/11
Two of these events happened less than an hour away from my home in Thornton, Colorado. This Saturday will mark the 20 year anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre and since that time mass shootings have become more and more frequent, even commonplace.
