Wait wait wait what do you mean Byron fought a skinhead? I didn't know that. If you could explain to me what happened exactly I'd be glad :)

Page 99 (electronic version) and 184 (book version) of “A Mother’s Reckoning” by Sue Klebold

“A friend consoled me with the Winston Churchill chestnut: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” But the bad news kept coming. We got a call from Byron in the emergency room; he needed stitches in three places after standing up to a racist ex-skinhead. That night, I finally allowed myself to acknowledge my despair over Byron’s situation. Of course, I was proud of him for standing up for his beliefs, but his decisions kept getting him into trouble, and nothing we did—therapy, support, tough love—seemed to help.”

For those of you wondering, this is from A Mother’s Reckoning. I’ll look & see if I can find any more info. I highly recommend A Mother’s Reckoning if you are interested in Dylan/Columbine.  I also encourage reading both Dylan & Eric’s journals, as I belive they are integral to the case.

Are all of these quotes real? Probably not. But either way, happy National Beer Day!
