Thirteen souls were taken too soon and countless lives changed forever. There is heartache and sorrow that time will never heal.

Over the last several months, however, Denver7 has had lengthy conversations with the families and those at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. In many of those conversations, we were asked to focus on the hope that came from Columbine, rather than that one dark day.

"The beauty that came from Columbine," a 30-minute, commercial-free broadcast, is a collection of those stories – some you may have never heard before.

You’ll hear inspirational stories from the response to the tragedy 25 years ago, about the spirit of service that has developed throughout the Columbine community in the years since, the effort to preserve the victims’ legacy and more.

Jessica Porter anchors the broadcast.
