Columbine sees itís 13th anniversary
Surviving student to make documentary about other survivors and their struggles

April 20, 2012

The Columbine shooting sees its 13th anniversary this year and although itís been a long struggle for families of the 13 victims of the massacre, it seems the then-high school students who witnessed the event are still suffering. One of the students who was in the cafeteria of Columbine High School that day, Sam Granillo, has decided to bring the attention away from the shooters and shed some light on those who have kept quiet the last 13 years.

The former Columbine student is now 30 and a film school graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has worked on commercials, TV shows and films, but has now decided to make the first documentary about Columbine by a student who witnessed it.

Memories of Columbine: 'We thought we were going to die'
April 20, 2012

SPOKANE, Wash. - Friday marks 13 years since 13 people were killed in the Columbine High School massacre. One of the survivors was Kevin Parker, now a Washington state lawmaker, who was in the cafeteria when the massacre happened.

"It was about 11:19 and we started to hear gunfire outside," Parker recalls. "There were 500 of us huddled in silence on the floor of the cafeteria as we began to hear gunshots."

What the students didn't know at the time was that students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris were going through the school, systematically shooting teachers and students.

By the end of the day, 12 students and one teacher were dead, another 24 were wounded and Klebold and Harris committed suicide.

Columbine principal Frank DeAngelis to retire
August 13, 2013

LITTLETON, Colo. -- The principal of Columbine High School, who helped shepherd students to safety during the 1999 shootings there, is retiring after 18 years of leading the school.

In a letter to parents Tuesday, Frank DeAngelis said he would step down at the end of the school year.

"People said, 'I'm amazed you're still there, that you have the strength,'" DeAngelis told KMGH-TV. "This place provides strength for me."

DeAngelis was in his office the morning of April 20, 1999, when two student gunmen launched an attack on the school, killing 13 people.

He shepherded a group of about 20 students to safety that day, and he survived with no physical injuries. However, he has said the shootings left him with severe anxiety attacks that felt like heart attacks. He said the attack contributed to the end of his marriage of 17 years because he didn't want to talk about what he was going through.

DeAngelis said he's healthier now and believes schools everywhere are safer because people are now more likely to report suspicious behavior.
