Candlelight vigil will honor Columbine victims

LITTLETON ” A candlelight vigil for the 13 people killed at Columbine High School is planned for tonight, the eve of the 10th anniversary of the massacre.

The vigil will be held at the Columbine Memorial in Clement Park next to the school in Denver’s southern suburbs.

The high school will be closed on Monday, the anniversary of the attack, and a memorial service is planned that night.

The Columbine Memorial is a broad oval nestled into a hill that overlooks the school. The outer wall includes a fountain and quotes from survivors and others. A smaller inner circle includes tablets devoted to each of the 13 victims, with inscriptions written by their families.

The memorial cost about $2 million. It was dedicated in September of 2007.
