She’s spent years excavating every detail of her family life, trying to understand what she could have done to prevent her son’s violence. In this difficult, jarring talk, Klebold explores the intersection between mental health and violence, advocating for parents and professionals to continue to examine the link between suicidal and homicidal thinking.

  1. Keith, thank you so much for sharing this. What an amazing woman. The grief she feels and lives with daily is unfathomable in my mind. She not only lost her son, whom she loved, but feels the loss of the lives he ended and touched. Mental illness is real. I have it in my life with my own family members and there are no right answers because it affects everyone so differently. I applaud her for raising awareness and reminding all of us that we must look at the whole person and we must strive daily to help in any way we can, without judgement.
