Description

"A year after the Columbine school massacre, Americans still wonder how and why such tragedies occur. Seeking answers, The Times examines the lives of the Rouses, whose son committed one of the first school shootings- a 1995 attack in Lynnville, Tennessee." The article details how the Rouses dealt with their son's actions- the questions they asked themselves, the ridicule they feared, and the life-long effects on their family. In addition, reporter Richard Meyer provides strong insight into Jamie Rouses feelings at the time of the shooting and Rouses thoughts on his actions now as he sits in prison with two consecutive life sentences.
