“I Never Stopped Loving Him”

Seventeen years have passed since we were stunned by the horror at Columbine High in Colorado.  It will be decades before the name Dylan Klebold will not make people pause and wonder why.  Just now his mother, Sue Klebold, has written a memoir entitled, A Mother’s Reckoning.  The publication of her heartbreaking story once again has put her in the spotlight and today she was interviewed by Terry Gross on NPR’s program, Fresh Air.   The last question put to her by Terry Gross was, “Do you still love your son?”  There was a pregnant pause and with a voice full of emotion Mrs. Klebold said, “I never stopped loving him.  I will love him until I breathe my last breath,” she says. “He’s like an invisible child that I carry in my arms everywhere I go, always.”
 
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Revelation 12
 
And so our history books are filled with gruesome revulsion and disgust at our inhumanity toward each other.  So often we try to paint it with nobility but it is useless because it is what it is – selfishness.  And so we ask God, who watched His very own Son perish here, “When did you stop loving Satan?”  And God says with a voice filled with emotion, “I never stopped loving him.  I will love him until I breathe my last breath. He’s like an invisible child that I carry in my arms everywhere I go, always.”
