America remembers Columbine 10 years later

Per Denver Post, people from Denver gathered on Sunday to remember those that were killed 10 years ago in an attack that resulted in the death of 13 high schoolers at Columbine High School. The gathering was held at Clement Park and is the location of the Columbine Memorial. Family members, friends, survivors and current students gathered in a candlelight vigil to remember those lost.

Twitterers from across the country are reflecting on the anniversary:
