Voices of Columbine: Excerpts from the “Columbine Mosaic” – Part II of II

The complete Columbine narratives are included in Experiences of Columbine Parents: Finding a Way to Tomorrow (available through ProQuest UMI AAT 3161558). Detailed explanation of my approach to research may be found in my text Interviewing for Education and Social Science Research: The Gateway Approach published by Palgrave Macmillan (2009, 2015).
I have made available stories of experiences of educators involved in mass violence events, including shootings, natural disaster, and terrorist attack, in my book Reclaiming School in the Aftermath of Trauma published by Palgrave-Macmillan (2012).

The rhythm is gonna get ya!

The rhythm is gonna get ya!

Ah… Sweet, sweet 🎶 We play it, fill our ears with it, go to sleep and wake up to it, a cappella to it, whistle to it, hum to it, dance to it, do back flips on ice and mats to it, attend standing-room-only concerts to it, Alleluia and Amen to it, protest and march to it, doo wop to it, Motown to it, rap to it, lull babies to sleep to it, provide a lady’s/gentleman’s choice to it, snowball to it, hokey pokey to it, scream it out loud (off key) in the car to it, shower to it, horses and riders dance Freestyle to it.
Maybe one day we learn to harmonize with each other to it.

Concert of Colors

Concert of Colors

MUSIC – perhaps the best way to appreciate its significance is to think of it as being nonexistent or unavailable.
What would our lives be without music? What would our emotional diaries – read like – feel like?

Thank goodness MUSIC lives reminding us of our diversity, inclusivity and humanity.

The Concert of Color is all about that universal harmony.
Check it out and be there.
The summer schedule will soon be available but the 2022 program provides insights as to its annual depth and breadth.
