Columbine shooting 10th anniversary

On 20 April 2009 it will be ten years since the Columbine High School shooting. How time flies. I still remember very clearly watching the events on TV as they unfolded.

There having a Columbine Anniversy sale down at the gun show this weekend, on "loophole" purchases only.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
