Susan Klebold, the mother of Columbine cowardly scumbag Dylan Klebold, has written an essay for Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine about her experiences since that fateful day in 1999. I’m sure that a lot of people, especially those in the Oprah crowd, are going to say how brave she is coming forward and crap like that. I still say she’s clueless and doesn’t get it.
In her unpaid essay for O she goes on about how she had no inkling that her son was planning on killing himself.
Dylan’s participation in the massacre was impossible for me to accept until I began to connect it to his own death. Once I saw his journals, it was clear to me that Dylan entered the school with the intention of dying there. And so in order to understand what he might have been thinking, I started to learn all I could about suicide. From the writings Dylan left behind, criminal psychologists have concluded that he was depressed and suicidal. When I first saw copied pages of these writings, they broke my heart. I’d had no inkling of the battle Dylan was waging in his mind.
Like I’ve said before she sees Columbine more as her son’s suicide then she does the fact that he took place in the mass murder of 13 people. I don’t care that her selfish bastard of a son was depressed. I care more about the fact that she did absolutely nothing to prevent the massacre from happening.
If the Harrises and Klebolds actually did their jobs as parents not only their sons but their 13 victims would be alive today. Instead they were too self-absorbed in their own little lives and blaming everyone else for their kids’ issues then being actual parents. And if Columbine never happened we probably wouldn’t have had other tragedies like Red Lake and Virginia Tech.
In my opinion the blood of every victim from every school shooting that has happened since Columbine is on your hands.
