Play null On April 20,year-old Dylan Klebold and fellow student Eric Harris, who was 18, opened fire inside their high school, killing 13 and injuring more than 20 before turning their weapons on themselves. Dylan changed everything I believed about myself, about God, about family and about love. In her essay, Klebold describes an exchange she had with Dylan on the morning of the massacre and says she is haunted by not having seen him face-to-face that day. I had no idea that I had just heard his voice for the last time.
In the essay, entitled "I Will Never Know Why," Klebold writes that she had "no inkling" Dylan was depressed, suicidal and filled with rage at his peers. I needed to know how she felt. I knew what I was going through, which was hell.
And she had a hard time accepting it. We believed that he did not intend to hurt anyone,"she writes. Michalik says she believes Klebold when she says she had no idea what her son was planning.
I know several families whose children have committed suicide and they had no idea either. The kids come home from school and they eat dinner and then go off to extracurricular activities, then they go to bed.
But teachers see them more," she said. She says Dylan Klebold wrote essays and videos filled with violent images -- essays that school staff read. And yet, no one alerted his parents that Klebold was clearly depressed.
No one said anything.
If they had just compared notes, I think they would have had a clue something was going on," Michalik said. Once I saw his journals, it was clear to me that Dylan entered the school with the intention of dying there. And so in order to understand what he might have been thinking, I started to learn all I could about suicide," she writes.
Michalik says her son Richard is now a sound engineer, working for the Showtime network in Los Angeles. He moved there three years ago, after growing tired of being "the Columbine kid" in his hometown. She says she learned later that Dylan Klebold was also learning how to be a sound technician.
She says her son later realized they had things in common and that maybe they could have been friends. The whole thing was such a tragedy," she says.
