LITTLETON, Colo. — Thirteen years since the tragedy at Columbine High School, a number of victims and their families are hoping the shooting will leave a more meaningful impact.

“I was in the cafeteria when everything happened,” said Sam Granillo, a former Columbine High School Student.

Granilllo, now a Denver resident, is putting together a documentary that could help raise money for the students who may need counseling to help deal with the tragedy.

The documentary, “Columbine: Wounded Minds,” is in the early stages of production and will focus on the aftermath of the attack and how the 13 victims and their families continue to cope with the massacre.

“There are several hundred of us left in the position to deal with the trauma on a daily basis without any resources. We have become our own therapists over the years and we need a better solution,” said Granillo on the documentary’s website.

The project is still in need of funding to help cover crew and travel costs.

The group hopes to raise over $200,000. Filming of the documentary is already underway.
