They kept to themselves. They would just sit at the back of the room. They didn’t get involved. People made fun of them and when I heard someone say they wanted revenge, I said: That makes sense. I stayed away from them.

Soon, Eric and Dylan would kill themselves in the library, denying any of us the chance to question them. I’d never be able to sit down across from the guy I used to throw snowballs at in elementary school and ask him why he had wanted to kill all those people who had done him no wrong whatsoever.

I think that they had kind of a hidden hatred that they just didn’t show anyone but each other, and I — you know, I wish that we could have — their friends — we could have helped them in some way.
