Columbine Memorial - Littleton, CO
The Columbine Memorial was built to honor and remember the innocent victims of the April 20, 1999 shootings at Columbine High School. Families of the victims, students, faculty, and community members have all expressed a desire for creation of a permanent memorial. The Columbine Memorial Committee was formed shortly after the shootings, and the development of an appropriate design was ongoing since then. Many people within, and outside of, the Columbine community were interested in funding and completing a permanent memorial to make sure that innocent victims who died, were injured, or otherwise endured the Columbine tragedy were not forgotten.
