*Rebroadcast* (originally aired 9/3/21)

After the mass murder at Robb Elementary school in Texas yesterday, we're re-airing our Sue Klebold episode. In All The Wiser, we use human stories to challenge us to think differently about the world, and to learn about different perspectives, voices, and messages.

In order to prevent mass shootings, it is imperative to understand all the factors that lead to them. This fall, I had the privilege of talking to two moms who lost their sons in very different ways to school shootings. One of them was Sue Klebold, mother of Dylan Klebold, one of Columbine's two shooters. The second was Scarlett Lewis, the mother of Jesse Lewis, who was killed in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook. Both women loved their sons and dedicated their lives to ending mass shootings.

It is my hope that today in re-airing Sue's episode and encouraging you to also listen to Scarlett's story, we can think deeply about how little boys grow up to become young men who commit mass murders. 

Let's learn from them so we can all decide what role we will play in ending the heartbreak in our country.
