Tomorrow marks the 10th anniversary of a horrible shooting rampage by students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. They killed 12 of their fellow classmates and a teacher, injured 23, and took their own lives.

Guest host Linda Wertheimer traveled to Littleton shortly after the tragedy in 1999 and met with the Lagerborg family. Drew Lagerborg was a junior then.

Ten years later, Drew and his parents have more to say about how they and the community have healed.
