Sandy Hook, Parkland, Virginia Tech, Santa Fe, the names have become infamous and tragically synonymous with atrocity. However, it is Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado that remains the inception point in the minds of Americans for school shootings. This week Navy SEALs Marcus Luttrell and the Wizard welcome to the TNQ Podcast, Frank DeAngelis the Columbine principal at the time of the massacre, to tell his never quit story in the aftermath of despicable evil, and lay down wisdom accumulated in his 35+ years of service guiding the upcoming generations.

 

Frank was there on the day of the shooting in Littleton that left thirteen dead. He mourned with the Columbine community and vowed to never forget those who were murdered and dedicated his life and career to helping his students – his kids – recover. He committed to staying on as principal to help the students and the community heal, and continues to this day assisting in the healing process for other communities around the country. An example of this is his recent book, They Call Me Mr. De: The Story of Columbine’s Heart, Resilience, and Recovery whose proceeds go toward funding three unique charities associated with recovery from the Columbine tragedy.
