12 years ago today I was a senior in high school. I can still remember the day, Tuesday April 20, 1999. It was cold and gloomy that day. I remember freezing at track practice and I was so excited for it to be over so I could go to the tanning bed to warm up and then get my nails done.
I remember sitting there having my nails done and hearing on the radio about the Columbine shooting. I spent the next 3 days glued to the TV because my neighbors Grandson, Matthew Kechter was killed that day.
So today my thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and the families of the Columbine shooting, especially the Kechter family. RIP Matthew Kechter, taken too soon, but will never be forgotten.
