I dubbed my shotgun “Arlene” after Arlene Sanders from the DooM books. Shes always did love the shotgun. - Eric Harris
Eric’s comment to his mother after not getting a prom date.
"When we think of Columbine, it is hard not to remember Patrick Ireland. He was the boy we saw fall from the window into the arms of a SWAT team member below. Patrick had been shot twice in the head and once in the foot.
It took him three hours to crawl across the library and make it to the open window. The image of him falling from the window might be fresh in our minds, Patrick has no memory of it. His injuries also left him paralyzed on his right side. He had to relearn how to walk, talk, and eat again.
Patrick went on to graduate from Columbine High School as class valedictorian. He attended university and excelled there as well. He is now married, and successful in many areas of his life. “We have a choice in how we live our lives,” says Patrick. “You wake up every single day and have a choice as living as a victim or a victor. When you choose to be a victor, you have so much more positive impact on how people view you and the way you want to live your life.”
