Wow, I am so glad you posted this! I dont come around here often, but so glad I did today! I dont read that particular magazine, but will this month to read that. From day one, I have always said that I felt worse for the parents of the shooter than anything....how horrible would it be to not only lose your children too, but have all those unanswered questions about why and how you missed it, what went wrong, and the millions of what ifs.....I truly believe that it is worse for them then the rest of the victims families.
I remember the 'Preppy Killer' case, it was interesting....he killed a girl named Jennifer, I believe....I think I read that he is back in jail now also...

My grandmother had round the clock nurses so that she could stay in her apartment. One of the nurses was the mother of the "Preppie Killer." This was a huge case in the news about 20 years ago. Of course I knew him & his mother for many years but was shocked when I heard about it. One of the other nurses told me that she would prefer that her son were killed rather than he kill someone else. The killer's been in & out of jail several times since he was released on drug charges and I think he's currently in jail.

Pick this issue up or read it at the library. There's an article that's an essay by the mom of one of the Columbine high school shooters. I had read a short article about it on-line and happened to be at the library last night and they had the latest issue with the full essay in it. My heart goes out to this mom and all the other victim's families. Having 2 children myself (15 yr girl, 12 yr boy) it just makes you reflect on your relationship with your children and would you be able to pick up the signs that something was wrong. It is so easy, as our children get older and more independent and we get more involved in our own identities and lives again, to miss subtle changes or to just chalk them up to normal teen growing pains.
