Amy Over was just 18 years-old when she desperately clung to a classmate as they hid together under a cafeteria table during the chaos and terror of a mass shooting in progress. It was a peaceful day with a crystal-clear blue sky on April 20, 1999, when suddenly two teenage students executed a yearlong plan to murder their classmates in what is today known as the Columbine High School massacre. Amy, who is now the Director of Fundraising for The Rebels Project, shares the red flags parents can look for when assessing potential mass shooters in their own schools. She also reveals the reality of her life following her narrow escape from Columbine that fateful day, how motherhood saved her, and why parents need to communicate with their children to avoid future shooting-related catastrophes.
