What this proves is that there is truly no way to protect oneself from those few who go beserk and that time has a way of smoothing out our memories. Certainly something like this should have been remembered. But with distance, the horror seems to lessen. I know that someday in the not-so-distant future that even the Twin Tower memorial will become a curious oddity. Will people two generations from now find it significant? Or will it merely be a footnote when history books try to explain the American invasion of Iraq in the early 2000s?

Even in Mid-Michigan, the Bath School Disaster is little remembered. Growing up there, in the 50's and 60's, we had never heard about it, though many of our parents certainly remembered it-- and there were survivors and surviving family members still living in the area.

In those days, the schools in the area were subject to periodic, anonymous bomb threats, and we were all familiar with the evacuation routine, though we had no idea why the threats evoked such fear.

I think that, though it is never mentioned, the press do know of the Bath Disaster, and they acknowledged in both the Columbine Massacre and the Virginia Tech shootings with the qualifier, "largest gun-related school tragedy"
