Denver (AP) - Parents and survivors of the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School are saying good things about an essay released by the mother of shooter Dylan Klebold.

Susan Klebold made the most detailed public remarks since the attack by any parent of the two Columbine killers in an essay released Tuesday and published in O, the Oprah magazine.

In the essay, Klebold says she had ``no inkling'' her son was suicidal or depressed.

The essay sparked strong emotions for Connie Michalik. Her son, Richard Castaldo, was shot and partially paralyzed in the rampage.

Michalik and a student who witnessed the massacre both said Tuesday they appreciated the essay and believed Susan Klebold didn't know her son was so disturbed.
