One by one, students, parents and neighbors arrived at Columbine High School on Tuesday to remember those killed five years ago in the worst school shooting in U. Retirees Les and Vi Fast, who live nearby, walked across a field near Columbine in the morning sun. Like others, they said they were here for quiet reflection.
