And see into the lives of these kids and realize that they were both victims too and Susan Klebold oes a fantastic job of explaining her grievances and the Yolandas Genius difficulties she had had after the Columbine attackCannot recommend this book enough Among all of theocumentaries that covered this incident this is the one that had one person s point of view that I wanted to listen and understand how and why Sue was like my own mom and I can relate to Dylan and knew what he felt in those teenage years You have my support Sue I struggled to put this book The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty down because it s heartbreaking and also a great insight into the mind of someone who had to suffer through the atrocities that her son committed It addressed the topic ofepression a lot which I found to be informative Sue is very elouent and intelligent in her writing and is a great advocate for Mental Health Awareness I would highly recommend this book I went into this book with an open mind and came out having a lot of respect for Sue Klebold She is clearly a The Light Beyond the Forest decent woman whoid her best raising Dylan and I The First Mistake don t consider the massacre to be a result of bad upbringing at all Life must have been hell for her since and I have so much sympathy grieving for a son who she obviously had love for but also trying to come to terms with the horrific event he took part in would have beenestroying Coping with a child s suicide is heart breaking enough but also having to Jewelry Making For Beginners deal with him being responsible for othereaths and injuries makes it 100 times worse not to mention the general public speculating what a bad Mother she must have been I like the way Sue Klebold openly tells the story but oesn t pass negative judgement on Eric and his family which other victims in a similar position would naturally be inclined to o Evidence suggests Eric was the instigator of Columbine and Dylan was a lost teenager who ended up going along with it but Klebold oesn t bitterly preach this in the slightest She is aware that although Dylan idn t have the psychopathic tendencies Eric possessed he was still responsible for his own actions She comes across as a caring lady who feels constantly guilty about the Seven Secrets of Happiness destruction her son caused Sue Klebold should be proud of this honest account andonating all of the book profits to mental health charities plus the work she has The Killer Cats Birthday Bash (The Killer Cat, done for them over the years in such a messed up situation I think it shows a great amount of courage and kindnessIon t think people should read this searching for clues or answers about why the murders happened unfortunately these types of cases often The Force of Destiny don t have clear cut reasons In my mind it boilsown to a couple of teenagers with serious mental health problems that lost the plot to the point of barely knowing the ifference between fantasy and reality I was so looking forward to reading this book My generation remembers 3 things Where we were when the OJ verdict was announced where we were on 911 and where we were when we heard *About Columbine I Was Only *Columbine I was only few years older than the shooters and in my brothers living room when I first saw that now famous clip of the kids running away with their hands on their head Now as a Mom of two boys I have often thought about the parents and if this tragedy could have been prevented So "When I Heard About This Book I Couldn T Wait "I heard about this book I couldn t wait read it The book is well written and I loved some of the references to her journal as it was very insightful to how she was feeling at the time However it is positioned as something that will help people prevent these types of tragedies Unfortunately every page seemed to contain either a efence of her son an example her being a great parent or blaming the other shooter I understand the need to How I Became a Nun do this as a mother but not owning what your sonid and what you missed The Rose Tattoo and Other Plays doesn t help anyone I was veryisappointed This is a thoughtful courageous and well written book Sue Klebold has walked a road that most of us will not have to and the public needs to read fir.
