Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of columbine?
But school-based arrests in Pennsylvania alone went up by 300 percent since columbine.
During the early minutes of the columbine attack, Eric Harris shot at everyone he could spot moving outside.
c.1300, from Old French columbine "columbine," or directly from Medieval Latin columbina, from Late Latin columbina "verbena," fem. of Latin columbinus, literally "dove-like," from columba "dove." The inverted flower supposedly resembles a cluster of five doves. Also a fem. proper name; in Italian comedy, the name of the mistress of Harlequin.
