Publisher's Summary

Dillon Cossey felt isolated and alone… until he turned to the internet to connect with other victims of bullying which led to him poring over sites about school shootings. Not long after, he was arrested. In this episode, we see how chronic bullying can change the adolescent brain and, along with other significant factors, can lead to violence. Also, we hear from Sue Klebold, mother of one of the Columbine High School shooters.

Excellent episode!

Episode 5 of the What Were You Thinking? series, titled You Are Not Alone by Dina Temple-Raston, was an excellent listen. Being a high school teacher of 20 years, I found this topic (school shootings, bullying, ... ) to be relevant and so very real. While the episode centers around the shooters of the Columbine tragedy, listeners from NY to CA, will find the content thought-provoking, necessary, and informative. You also get to hear from Sue Klebold, the mother of Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold, in the second half, which was very interesting. From educators and administrators to members of the community, this episode definitely opens the floor to discussion on a variety of issues that we are faced with today. Don't miss this one! :-)

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful.

Good, but flawed

Again, I liked the in-depth study, but it was done abroad. They started off speaking about Columbine, but then focused on a horrible school shooting in Finland, and what they did to fix the issue. It sounds like it was effective, but I would love to hear if they found any studies and programs have implemented in US schools to reduce the chances of school shootings. Especially, when it seems like every year we have about two to three.
