For the first time, the mom of one of the two teenagers responsible for the Columbine High School massacre breaks her silence to Oprah's magazine.
Susan Klebold, whose son, Dylan, along with Eric Harris gunned down students at a Columbine High School in 1999 before killing themselves, pens an article for Oprah's "O" magazine describing her connection to the tragedy.
"For the rest of my life, I will be haunted by the horror and anguish Dylan caused," she wrote. "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. Dylan changed everything I believed about myself, about God, about family and about love."
The most revealing part of the article is when Susan admits she had no idea her son was in any emotional turmoil. Experts who have analyzed Dylan's writings concluded he was depressed and suicidal. "I'd had no inkling of the
battle Dylan was waging in his mind," she wrote.
For those of us who'd like to hear more from Susan Klebold, we're out of luck. According to reps at "O," Susan Klebold will not be making an appearance on "Oprah," and a spokeswoman for the Klebold family said there would be no further statements.
