However, watching movies and reading articles as an adult puts things into perspective. When I think back on September 11th I feel like it was a dream because I was so young.

A few months ago, as my mother picked me up from school, she broke the news to me that my grandfather developed stage 4 lung cancer.

I believe survivors of the Columbine shooting are not able to to truly move past the tragedy because the community will forever be known as “Columbine the tragedy” rather than Columbine the High School. A traumatic experience in which the individuals faced will stick with them for the rest of their lives. Individuals such as Patrick Ireland is able to create a new life, but is not truly able to move past the tragedy because physical injuries like his pinky or toes will constantly remind him of what occurred on April 20, 1999.

Cullen states, “Linda is angry at the cops, the school, the church she finally abandoned” (360).

We decided that it was best to not talk to each other because there was bound to be some things that shouldn 't be said. After one day of being cooped up, we couldn 't take the silence anymore.

Each day I would call my mother asking for updates on how he was recovering, yet all she would say is “you’re too young to understand” and hang up. I could feel the pain in her voice through the phone and I could sense something was terribly wrong. Over and over I envisioned that my grandfather never actually woke up from the anesthesia; I wasn’t wrong. My grandfather’s funeral was another day that I will never forget, it was as if God was showing to me that everything was going to be all right.
