Overview

Five years after the event, Columbine students and Latter-day Saints Liz Carlston, Amber Huntington, and Mike Johnson share what happened to them on that fateful day and tell of God's comforting power that was manifest in the midst of the turmoil. Liz remembers her experiences with Coach Sanders, who was her basketball coach and who died trying to save his students. Amber describes her harrowing moments in the school library when the gunmen burst through the doors and opened fire. Mike, one of the first students shot outside the schoolyard, shares his story of medical miracles, with his mother Kathy, adding a parent's perspective. As difficult as surviving Columbine was, the aftermath proved to be just as difficult as the students struggled with depression, guilt, physical challenges, and emotional upheaval. Yet, through it all, their testimonies of Jesus Christ and his gospel remained an integral part of their lives, providing them with much-needed perspective, patience, and hope. Their stories are an inspiring account of how faith endures despite fear, how testimonies are strengthened from trials, and how healing is possible through the divine ministrations of God.

    A Grandparent Tries To Understand?

    I thought I was tired of hearing any more of what happened that day, but I have been studying this subject, doing a lot of reading, and am now getting a better understanding. Reading the personal experiences of these three victims and how they have come away all the stronger for the experience, makes for uplifting reading. I shed a few tears, but thoroughly enjoyed the book. I'd recommend it to anyone, any age from teen to a grandparent like me now.

    A moving tribute and engaging story

    I remember vividly where I was and what I was doing when I heard about the Columbine shootings. I was worried that the book would be a sensational rehash of the gory details; but this book is more about the faith and hope that helped these kids survive Columbine. I was particulary impressed with Amber's story--she was in the library during the shootings. Columbine survivor (and author) Liz Carlston did a great job blending the stories to create a book that is an engaging and touching tribute to those who died--and those who lived.
