  • A lot of bad things happen in April. Coincidence???
    First of all, Hitler's birthday is the 20th. But the other bad things that have happened in April, just to name a few, are:

    Columbine shooting
    Virginia Tech shooting
    Oklahoma bombing
    Waco incident


    Can you think of others? Maybe it's just because the weather is starting to become warmer and people start going crazy or something! Kind of strange, don't you think?

    Do only bad things happen in April, or do good things happen too?

    My mom died in April. However, there are many good things that have happened in April for our family.

    Interesting point, Peachy. All of the events you named are curious ones, too, with plenty of controversy associated with them.

    I think it is the transisition from winter to spring. Many people have Season Affective Disease and are depressed. They do not know how to deal with it. And yes many things happen in late March and April.

    They're not all separate incidents.

    The Columbine shooters picked that date because of Hitler's birthday.

    The Oklahoma City bombing was on that date because of Waco.

    Had Hilter been born in October, then then Columbine would have been in October; same as the Oklahoma City / Waco connection.

    I think blaming it on the month of April is ridiculous.

    I remember when I worked with police dispatch, the spring time was horrible for police. We would always budget extra money in the spring for overtime for our officers because they were going to be so busy.

    I'm not blaming anything on the month of April, just wondering why so many bad things seem to happen then.

    I do not follow the correlation between Hitler and the Columbine shootings. For one thing, Dylan Klebold (one of the assassins) was Jewish--it goes without saying he was disturbed, but Hitler just seems like an odd hero for a Jewish kid.

    There is, however, an interesting parallel between Eric Harris (other assassin at Columbine) and the perpetrator of the shootings at Virginia Tech--both were on anti-depressants (allegedley).

    Can I think of others? Sure, there are plenty of tragedies that have happened in April over the years.
    Some of the more memorable ones are:
    Abraham Lincoln Assassination
    1906 San Francisco Earthquake
    Titanic Sinking
    The Texas City Explosion
    Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination
    Chernobyl

    I don't know! LOL! It just sounded kind of crazy to me and I thought I'd let ya'll ponder it with me.

    Good things in April:
    My ds was born
    My Grandmother was born
    My Sister was born
    Jesus arose from the dead
    The civil war ended
