10 years later...remembering Columbine.

I traveled to Columbine High School in Littleton, CO, to cover the 10th anniversary of the Columbine tragedy. This photo is of my interview with Patrick Ireland. He was shot 3 times at Columbine, and is most famously known as the the boy who climbed out the window. Patrick told me it took him 3 hours to make it from the floor of the library to the window, he was so badly injured. He graduated first in his class at Columbine, graduated college, married his lovely wife Casey and has a successful career in finance. He speaks across the country about his story, and his desire to turn that horrible day into something positive. He told me in our interview "You can chose to be a victim or a victor in life. I am a victor." What a blessing to talk to this amazing young man. Story is Monday, April 20th on Inside Edition.
