Glendale High School students participated in Rachel’s Challenge, an anti-violence program started by the parents of Rachel Scott, the first death in the Columbine school shooting outside Denver in 1999. Students watched a video that combines Rachel’s life with footage from the horrific day at Columbine High School when 12 students and one teacher were shot to death by two students. Organizers said the presentation is meant to encourage acts of kindness. After the video, a 45-minute session with adult and student leaders discussed ways to sustain the lessons of Rachel’s legacy.

Thanks so much for letting all of us back in Glendale share in the glory of having some of our own Glendalians right there on the spot, where help is so sorely needed, and when it is needed. Scientology volunteer ministers have a long track record of helping amid disasters -- the L.A. quake a few years ago, the wars in Kosovo and Bosnia, the riots in Los Angeles, earthquakes in Taiwan, after the bombing of the Atlanta Olympic Games, at the Federal Building in Oklahoma, after the shootings at Columbine High School, and many others.

Many who are following the Virginia Tech tragedy are sharing the deep sorrow of parents and relatives of those who perished. We all try to make sense of violence so incomprehensible that we feel compelled to grasp for answers ? almost any answer. We wonder if we've learned anything from the similar incident at Columbine High School five years ago. The lesson of Columbine, I believe, lies in our understanding of the mental state of Eric Harris and his depressed partner. The lessons we should learn from Virginia Tech are probably very similar.

From the shocking massacre at Columbine High School in 1990, the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012, and the countless other horrific school shootings that have taken place in the last couple years, guns and perpetual fear have become the norm in American schools. Americans are beginning to realize the danger our youth face as violence and shootings in schools increases. According to statistics gathered by Dr. David Hemenway, a professor at Harvard University, American children are 13 times more likely to be murdered by guns as youths in other industrialized countries.

Jenna Bordelon LA CRESCENTA -- Tamar Ausherman, 14, watched a video covering the one-year anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre at the Solid Rock Youth Group meeting Tuesday night. She does not think the same thing could happen at her school, Rosemont Middle School. "There are some people that are kind of out there and get made fun of," she said. "Maybe if we be nice and show others about the Lord with everything, we can help them feel better about themselves and other people."

Tania Chatila If the bullets start flying, local business leaders will know what to do after getting the rundown from the Police Department's SWAT unit Thursday at the Chamber of Commerce. Glendale Police Lt. Gary Montecuollo made a presentation on the deployment tactics of the city's SWAT team at this month's city Chamber of Commerce Business, Safety and Security committee meeting. Montecuollo broke down the methodology behind SWAT tactics through video, slides and live presentations for community members, who then joined him in the chamber's parking lot to get a close look at a real SWAT car. "I think it's great information for people to know and share with the rest of the community," said Ann Marie Piersol, who is with Security Design Systems.

There are families in Newtown, Conn. who are enduring the holidays without their children. There are empty spots on couches, unwrapped presents and those who weep at the sight of them. The Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School - which took the lives of 20 first-grade students and six staff members - means that this season is forever marred by loss for the New England community. The trauma has reverberated across the country. We gathered in parks and churches to memorialize the victims.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE -- Kids who kill kids have died inside long before they picked up a weapon to take another life, according to an author who will speak during a Glendale summit on violence in September. James Shaw of Inglewood, the author of the recently released guide for parents called "Jack & Jill, Why They Kill: Saving Our Children, Saving Ourselves," said youth violence cases are similar from community to community. "The kids who killed these kids did not do so in the blink of an eye," Shaw said who has followed the killings of three teenagers in Glendale over the past three months.

Robert Chacon Standing to the side of the stage, almost smirking, a school shooting suspect in a play at La Canada High School ignored his victims' ghosts Wednesday as they pined for what their lives could have been. Jailed for killing five classmates and his parents during a shooting spree, the student relived the events that compounded his life and led to the violent episode. Staged by the school's second-year drama class of sophomores and led by teacher Gale Caswell, "Bang, Bang You're Dead" was an emotional assessment of the motives behind school shootings.
