TXT A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy Reading online


Our son did and what ou missed doesn t help anyone I was very disappointed This is a thoughtful courageous and well written book Sue Klebold has walked a road that most of us will not have to and the public needs to read first not judgeThe commonly held belief that everyone is a product of their family of origin is challenged here People want to believe this mantra because to admit otherwise is too scary and it contradicts the order and predictability that most people desire for their worldThe Klebold home provided every athletic cultural and community opportunity complete with animal companionship and the love of two *caring parents an older child was not involved *parents An older child was not involved allThis book is gripping and is #a must read Excellent book but very sad I like to hear the perspective of the perpetrator s families #must read Excellent book but very sad I like to hear the perspective of the perpetrator s families they are often forgotten or blamed in the wake of a tragedy It s an insightful book but scary to see that what the parent s mistook for normal teenage depression and angst was leading to such a heinous crime Anyone who likes to read all sides of true crime will like this A very brave book by an interesting if slightly obsessed woman that delves into the meaning of being a parent as much as it does the nature of dealing with deep tragedy and lossI have my uestions about the veracity of some of Mrs Klebold s claims but for the most part she is relating her own uniue experience of the events around Columbine and how they affected her and those close to her so my doubts are perhaps without answersThis book broadened my perspective about the culture and society I live in UK and my awareness of mental health issues many suffer with every day Understanding such things better enables me to empathise with the sufferers and has certainly improved my relationship with some of the individuals I come into contact with in my professional lifeColumbine has become a term which has expanded beyond its own boundaries to encapsulate a sense of horror tragedy miscomprehension and helplessness which meanders through all our lives today whether under the guise of gun crime in the US or random terrorist acts in the UK and elsewhere Klebold s book tackles these issues head on no holds barred and with glaring honesty encompassing the effects of child crimes on the wider psyche and how it is our nature to deny first and only after time has passed slowly accept what can no longer be avoided about the Hummer young persons we live with every day take to school shop for feed and share holidays withIf nothing else this is a refreshing viewpoint on a still painful subject the literature around which is often bursting with conspiracy theories and sensationalism It helps to humanise what has long been considered inhuman and acknowledges the fact that the perpetrators of school shootings and terrorist attacks are all somebody s children and that there may parents grieving the loss of their child every time something like Columbine happens It s never just about the perpetrators and their immediate victims for the victims are many and varied as this book elouently and intelligently explains I like a lot of people uestion the upbringing of mass murderers so bought this book to see from the other side Ifou are looking for a minute by minute account about Columbine this isn t it it is all written from Sue Klebold s mother of Dylan perspective and unfolds in the order events did for her It is not a book of excuses she writes clearly that isn t her intention This is actually my only criticism of the book that by saying so often she isn t excusing I felt a little uncomfortable as if she tries to detract from Dylan I genuinely feel this is just my pe. 6The acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Sue Klebold mother of one of the Columbine shooters about living in the aftermath of

twenty four others before taking their own lives For the last sixteen With Baited Breath (Warhammer 40,000) years Sue Klebold Dylans mother has lived with the indescribable grief and shame of that day How could her child the promisingoung man she had loved and raised be responsible for such horror And how as his mother had she not known something was wrong Were there subtle signs she had missed What if anything could she have done differently These are uestions that Klebold has grappled with every day since the Columbine tragedy In A Mothers Reckoning she chronicles with unflinching honesty her journey as a mother trying to come to terms with the incomprehensible In the hope that the insights and understanding she has gained may help other families recognize when a child is in distress she tells her story in full drawing upon her personal journals the videos and writings that Dylan left behind and on countless interviews with mental health experts Filled with hard won wisdom and

Cornerstone (Souls of the Stones,
Bold does a fantastic job of *explaining her grievances and the difficulties she had had after the Columbine attackCannot recommend this book *her grievances and the difficulties she had had after the Columbine attackCannot recommend this book Among all of the documentaries that covered this incident this is the one that had one person s point of view that I wanted to listen and understand how and why Sue was like my own mom and I can relate to Dylan and knew what he felt in those teenage ears You have my support Sue I struggled to put this book down because it s heartbreaking and also a great insight into the mind of someone who had to suffer through the atrocities that her son committed It addressed the topic of depression a lot which I found to be informative Sue is very elouent and intelligent in her writing and is a great advocate for Mental Health Awareness I would highly recommend this book I went into this book with an open mind and came out having a lot of respect for Sue Klebold She is clearly a decent woman who did her best raising Dylan and I don t consider the massacre to be a result of bad upbringing at all Life must have been hell for her since and I have so much sympathy grieving for a son who she obviously had love for but also trying to come to terms with the horrific event he took part in would have been destroying Coping with a child s suicide is heart breaking enough but also having to deal with him being responsible for other deaths and injuries makes it 100 times worse not to mention the general public speculating what a bad Mother she must have been I like the way Sue Klebold openly tells the story but doesn t pass negative judgement on Eric and his family which other victims in a similar position would naturally be inclined to do Evidence suggests Eric was the instigator of Columbine and Dylan was a lost teenager who ended up going along with it but Klebold doesn t bitterly preach this in the slightest She is aware that although Dylan didn t have the psychopathic tendencies Eric possessed he was still responsible for his own actions She comes across as a caring lady who feels constantly guilty about the destruction her son caused Sue Klebold should be proud of this honest account and donating all of the book profits to mental health charities plus the work she has done for them over the ears in such a messed up situation I think it shows a great amount of courage and kindnessI don t think people should read this searching for clues or answers about why the murders happened unfortunately these types of cases often don t have clear cut REASONS IN MY MIND IT BOILS DOWN TO A In my mind it boils down to a of teenagers with serious mental health problems that lost the plot to the point of barely knowing the difference between fantasy and reality I was so looking forward to reading this book My generation remembers 3 things Where we were when the OJ verdict was announced where we were on 911 and where we were when we heard about Columbine I was only a few The Alcohol Experiment years older than the shooters and in my brothers living room when I first saw that now famous clip of the kids running away with their hands on their head Now as a Mom of two boys I have often thought about the parents and if this tragedy could have been prevented So when I heard about this book I couldn t wait to read it The book is well written and I loved some of the references to her journal as it was very insightful to how she was feeling at the time However it is positioned as something that will help people prevent these types of tragedies Unfortunately every page seemed to contain either a defence of her son an example her being a great parent or blaming the other shooter I understand the need to do this as a mother but not owning what The acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Sue Klebold mother of one of the Columbine shooters about living in the aftermath of ColumbineOn April 20 1999 Eric Harris and Dylan
