Diane Sawyer Discusses Her Exclusive Interview With Mother of Columbine Killer
ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer joined Megyn Kelly tonight to discuss her exclusive, eye-opening interview with Sue Klebold, the mother of one of the Columbine shooters.
Sawyer said that Klebold, who has remained silent for 17 years after the tragic school shooting that left 15 dead, including her son and the other killer, shared the "shattering lessons" that she has learned.
Sawyer said that one striking thing that Klebold revealed was that both she and her son were keeping journals at the same time. While Klebold was writing about adolescent phases and her son's happier times, he was writing about his suicidal depression.
She didn't see it? Megyn asked.
Sawyer pointed out that adolescents are better at hiding depression than adults, and she thinks that this interview might hit close to home for many viewers.
"I think parents at home are going to be debating big after this: Do you respect privacy? Do you ransack the room?"
Sawyer concluded that the interview shows Klebold's struggle to grapple with who her son really was, what she missed and what she blames herself for.
UPDATE: Ahead of the big interview, Anne Marie Hochhalter, who was paralyzed in the 1999 massacre, wrote a powerful Facebook post addressed to Klebold.
