New York City, Oct 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Susan Klebold, the mother of Dylan who was instrumental in the Columbine high School Massacre, has published an essay in “O”, the Oprah magazine, talking about her son Dylan and his role in the Columbine school shootings that took place a decade ago on April 20th 1999. This essay is said to be the biggest public statement by any of the parents involved in the Columbine shootings. Another child Eric Harris was also involved in the massacre and the killings.

Klebold says her son was short with her on the day of the massacre, April 20th, but that he left the house with short words to her that she had no idea would be her last words heard from him.

Klebold says in the essay that she had no idea her son was depressed or suicidal. The essay is entitled “I will never know why” and Susan Klebold goes on to write:

“For the rest of my life, I will be haunted by the horror and anguish Dylan caused. I cannot look at a child in a grocery store or on the street without thinking about how my son’s schoolmates spent the last moments of their lives,” Klebold writes. “Dylan changed everything I believed about myself, about God, about family, and about love.”

It may be recalled that the Columbine High School massacre occurred on Tuesday, April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School. Two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, embarked on a merciless massacre, killing 12 students and a teacher, injured 21 others, while 3 were injured while attempting to escape, before committing suicide themselves.
