New Book Coming Out: Ceremonial Violence by Jonathan Fast [Jul. 15th, 2008|09:33 pm]
www.DylanKlebold.net LiveJournal Community

marphilly
"Ceremonial Violence analyzes the Columbine high school shooting and four other cases and explains for the first time why teenagers commit school rampage shootings. These cases include: Brenda Spencer, 16, who after shooting at elementary school children for no apparent reason explained to a reporter: ?I hate Mondays.? Wayne Lo, 18, a brilliant Taiwanese student and violin prodigy who embraced white supremacist rhetoric. One night he stalked the campus of Simon?s Rock College with a semi-automatic rifle picking victims at random. Evan Ramsey, 16, who went on a shooting rampage in Anchorage, alerting some twenty-five friends beforehand so they could observe the mayhem. Luke Woodham, 17, who claimed to have been controlled by demons when he killed his classmates. In addition to these cases, Fast provides a detailed, clear narrative of the Columbine shootings. With his grasp of the elements of abnormal psychology, developmental psychology, sociology, and neurology that contribute to the homicidal mindset, Fast offers us a means of understanding and coming to terms with these tragedies."

Hi everyone.

It has been almost two months since the passing of my dear friend Joe. Most all of you know him as one of the founding members of the Trench Coat Mafia, but to me, he was simply my friend.

I wasn't sure if many of you knew about his passing, but I wanted to let everyone know about it, since it was someone connected to Columbine. However, let us not forget that Joe was a person. He was not some glamorous famous person because of his Columbine connection. He was not meant to be some kind of idol. Who he was was a funny, down-to-earth guy who would give the shirt off of his back for his friends and family. He was a father, a husband, a brother, a son, a friend to many. He was the type of person you would never forget once you met him. One of those people who would be a friend for life, as they say.

As someone who enjoys writing obituaries and memorials for my friends and family who have sadly passed on, I have made a listing for Joe on FindAGrave.com. You can find it here. Some of the information needs to be tweaked (such as his birthdate), but I plan to get in touch with his sister again to correct the info. You are welcome to leave your condolences there, or you may leave them on the Denver Post website here. This goes without saying that if you do leave a message of condolence, it would be inappropriate to say something about Joe being an idol or anything like that. If I find out that someone does this, your ass is mine. That would be disrespectful, and there is no need for that.

With all of that said, may Joe rest in peace. The world is a duller place without him here to lend his laughter. I miss him terribly...

I posted this on the website community recently and thought people here might find it interesting.

I found an article about Dylan's funeral in one of my Internet searches. It was published in the July 1999 issue of The Director, a trade magazine for mortuary professionals. I had to order a copy since the full article wasn't available online and lucked out since I got the last available copy. The article was written by Martha Gaides, chair of the Mortuary Science Department at Arapahoe Community College. Here's the part about Dylan's funeral:

"On April 20, 1999, I watched the television in disbelief as the tragic events unfolded at Columbine High School. My disbelief turned into sadness as I learned that John Tomlin, a boy from my church, Foothills Bible Church, died in the library that day. The next morning, my disbelief and sadness turned to horror as I saw the name "Dylan Klebold" flash across my television screen.

I worked for several years with Sue Klebold at Arapahoe Community College. Until recently, Sue was on the Mortuary Science Program Advisory Committee and made certain that the program functioned under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act. My heart broke for Sue because I knew she was a good person and a good mother, and that her life would never again be the same.

Sue contacted me to ask for my help in arranging the cremation and private memorial service for her son. I called John Horan of Horan & McConaty Funeral Service, Denver, Colorado, and together we made funeral arrangements for Dylan Klebold. It was very important to me that I immediately tell Sue that I was there to love her and comfort her, and that I was not sitting in judgment of her. As Sue and her family talked and told stories of their son and brother, I was given the opportunity to hear of the caring, loving side of Dylan that most people will never hear about."

This comes from Calence at dylanklebold.com.
*Please note that it doesn't have to be about bullying. Could be about something you were going through in your life that the adults in your life didn't know about.
*The letters will not be posted on dylanklebold.com, but on a new website that is a collaboration between Calence, a few other people, and the guys from Teen Truth.

-----


Hi guys n gals and whoever is reading this!

I am currently working on a resource website with some other wonderfully creative people to promote the awareness of bullying and abuse in schools along with other social pressures. We are just getting started but we need your help with a portion of the site!

What we aim to do:

With this particular section of the resource site, we want to raise awareness among people about what teenagers are going through in their personal lives. Sometimes teenagers live in a world of pain and social pressure -- and no one knows about it.

What we need from you:

Write a one page letter to a parent, a teacher or even a friend -- describing to them what you really want them to know about your life so they will better understand what you are going through.

The letter can be anonymous -- all we ask is for a first name (or pseudonym) and your age.

When we need the submissions

All letters should be emailed to Calence either through myspace (http://myspace.com/calence) or sent to oddinxasa@gmail.com no later than June 16, 2007.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through myspace or AOL instant messenger under 'exilepolarity'

Thanks to everyone who has always been there to help with these kinds of projects in the past. Your effort is always appreciated!

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope to see some letters soon!

-Calence

An old exboyfriend of mine called today; someone I haven't talked to in probably a year. We didn't really get along post breakup for different reasons, but he called and apologized, as we have friends in common and he wanted to clear the air. We had a good conversation.

Keep in mind, he has no idea that I regularly research Columbine, am a member of the board, etc. He also goes to a different school than I do.

Anyway, we talked about music and that kind of thing for a while, and then he drops the bomb. He's been expelled for the remainder of the school year. Some girl accused him (falsely, he says) of threatening to bring a gun to school.

Holy damn.

Do you ever feel like there's a certain facet of your life that seems to be taking over the rest? Every where you look, no matter what you do, you see it. This is what it feels like for me, which is not something that I particularly mind, but it's a tiny bit disconcerting at times, as I've never had anything else consume my life so entirely. But it's always there now. Like I said, I don't know how I feel. I would never give up tlaking about it- I think that it's too big of a problem in today's society to have one more oblivious person.

I'm trying to make this sound like I want it to, but it's hard. I can say that I genuinely enjoy researching Columbine (and I hope that doesn't sound too odd). It almost feels like - and I hope this doesn't sound to cliche, because it does to me- some sort of calling for me. Like this is what was meant for me, but it frustrates me at the same time because I don't know what to do.

Maybe I just have that honors-student mentality that was instilled in us since grade school- that everything you do must lead to a career. I can't remember having a summer where I didn't take a class or do some honors program at a University. It's expected, and I do enjoy it.

But here I am, thrown this curveball, something I like but feel that I can't talk to anyone about, which is why I'm posting this in the dk.net blog space rather than my public journal. I ahve no idea what I'm doing anymore. I just needed to think and put thoughts down, so thanks for listening.
