Kelly-Fleming

Today we celebrate Daniel Mauser (June 25th 1983-April 20th 1999)’s birthday-one he should have been alive for.

Daniel met an unfortunate and horrible death at the age of 15 years old in the duration of the library killing spree at the Columbine High School massacre. Daniel pushed a chair into shooter Eric Harris before being fatally shot in the head, dying instantly.

Daniel’s funeral was conjoined with Kelly Fleming’s, and was a devastating one, just as the others had been. He died before he was made aware of the fact that he had won the award for “Stretch of Excellence” for being the top Biology student of the Sophomore High class of Columbine High School.

So today, hold Daniel in your heart and minds (as you should every day) and Daniel, wherever you are, we wish you the happiest of birthdays, and we are sorry we lost you. You are in our hearts forever, and we miss you. We carry on for you. 

Happy Birthday Daniel Conner Mauser. We love you.

This aerial shows just a small part of all the news media compounds near Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado, Wednesday, April 21, 1999. Media from all around the world poured into the area, just a day after the deadly shooting, leaving 15 people dead and 24 others seriously injured. 

Made a college of all those killed at Columbine on April 20th, 1990. im sorry this sucks. I was in a hurry.

On this day, you are to remember the victims, the students that were there that day, the families of every single person in that building, the people affected by the aftermath, the people lost in the aftermath. Every. Single. Person. No matter who they were, what they did, or who they knew. Don’t spend this day just thinking about Eric and Dylan. Remember everyone. Remember Columbine. And have some peace in mind for everyone who was affected that day, and is still affected today.

Happy birthday Kelly🙇‍♀️
Born January 6, 1983
16 years old in 1999.

Kelly Fleming and her family moved to Littleton from Phoenix, Arizona 18 months before the shooting.

Kelly was a shy and creative girl who loved Halloween and was an aspiring songwriter and author who wrote many poems and short stories based on her life experiences.
Her mother, Dee, remembered Kelly coming home from school two months before the shooting, saying: “I’m not shy anymore.”

When the shooters entered the library, Kelly was hiding beside a table with other girls who she had been sitting with: Lisa Kreutz, Jeanna Park, Diwata Perez, Valeen Schnurr, and Lauren Townsend. At one point Dylan Klebold fired under the table, injuring Val and Lisa. He fired his gun again, killing Lauren. Both gunmen reloaded their weapons and taunted Val, asking her if she believed in God. The shooters then moved away from Kelly’s table, moving to another table where they shot Nicole Nowlen and killed John Tomlin before coming back to the girls’s table. Coming up from behind, he shot Kelly in the back with his sawed-off shotgun.

Kelly’s funeral was held at the same time as Daniel Mauser’s at the St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church. She was buried with two teddy bears in her arms. Her grave is located at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.

“I suddenly found myself looking up at the windows of the old library and I was kind of just looking up there and I started talking to Kelly and telling her how much I missed her and loved her and I was so sorry for what happened to her there and I was praying to God that she was just truly happy and at peace. It was like almost immediately a movement caught my eye as I was looking up in the windows and I realized it was a figure moving across the front of the old library windows, I knew almost instantly that it was an angel and I was like oh my gosh. She was very clear to me when she started, she had like a long flowing gown, I knew she was very elegant and I was just "oh my gosh that’s an angel” and I wish I had a camera was the thought that came to mind. Then I did realize I had a camera sitting here in the front seat so I grabbed the camera, I took a couple of pictures very quick and then she was gone. I just knew she was sent as an answer to my prayer and I knew she had brought me a message from Kelly and I knew she was telling me that “I am with you always mom, I am happy and I’m at peace.”.“

- Dee Fleming, mother of Kelly Fleming

I get very emotional whenever I think of everyone who died on 4/20/99. They were young. It’s sad to think what those families went through that day. Just imagine that you hear that there’s a shooting going on in your child’s school. Or imagine finding out that your child is the shooter. It devastates me to think about. It could’ve been prevented. I cry just thinking about it. They all had stories. They all had a life. Just thinking that at one point I shared this planet with them is heartbreaking. 😢
