The Cokeville Miracle Foundation

There are several things coming to this page soon, but here is a rough start...

A few survivors of the Columbine Shooting have created a couple of projects that inspire us. We want to join - or add our forces with theirs, for good. We've only begun to realize there is so much more healing to do, and understand ways in which we can give back - because of our shared experiences. When our event ocurred, I'm not sure that PTSD was even a diagnosis. Some of us have come to understand the state we are in, and what we have carried for too many years - since childhood. Perhaps we can shorten the cycle of symptoms, or heal by reaching out... this will be a work-in-progress.

Here is The Rebel's Project.

Here is Resilient Hope.org
