Survivors of the deadly shootings at Columbine High School in 1999 are forming a pen pal group with those who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.
About 115 Columbine survivors have signed up so far to be pen pals. Organized through networks and Facebook groups for survivors of gun violence, the Columbine alums have also recruited a few of their former teachers to correspond with faculty members at the Parkland, Fla., high school.
Thirteen people were killed by two gunmen in the Colorado shootings, and 17 died in the attack at Stoneman Douglas.
