Columbine survivors mark twentieth anniversary of massacre

The crosses of the 13 people who died in the Columbine High School massacre 20 years ago in Colorado highlight those who were killed in 1999.

Pais was believed to be obsessed with the Columbine massacre in 1999, where two students maliciously attacked Columbine High School, murdering 12 students and a teacher, and injuring more.

At the ceremony's end, Frank DeAngelis, the school's principal at the time of the shooting, read the 13 names aloud in a wavering voice.

Among those addressing the crowd were survivors of the massacre, former staffers of the school and family members of the 12 students and one teacher who were shot to death by a pair of trench-coat-clad students carrying handguns, shotguns, pipe bombs and extra ammunition.

Addressing hundreds of people gathered at Saturday's service in a park next to the school, Dawn Anna, mother of slain student Lauren Townsend, spoke on behalf of all the families of the victims about their sense of loss.

Pastor James Hoxworth urged anyone who was still struggling because of the shooting to reach out for help.
