Jagi Frisbee : This was very deep, big ups to both of them and StoryCorps of course. Shame that Wayne took that path. He seems like a very well spoken and intelligent individual.

Nife : Man, that was heavy. My deepest respects to the father for allowing the shooter forgiveness so that he may hopefully exorcise the demons inhabiting his mind and perhaps one day contribute to society to repay at least 1% of the damage he caused. Thanks for making this, StoryCorps.

MH3Raiser : This is why revenge is such a stupid and pointless concept. Sure, it can feel redemptive, but imagine this: imagine the man who committed this shooting never got to apologise, was surrounded by so much pain and anger (no matter how well deserved it is) that he was consumed by it. Imagine him, finally out of prison, a destroyer looking for more targets to hurt. But this conversation means that, even if he can never change the past, he may be able to help the world be a slightly, minisculely better place than that afternoon he killed someone's son. And that benefits everyone.

Vanessa : Gosh, that made me cry.

Elias Kakar : Thats a really emotional video u got there

Julio Angel : So much respect to the father to face his sons killer and having a chat.

Bill Busen : I think I can see how Galen turned out to be a kid that got a standing ovation from a bunch of people who didn't even all know him.

KunoichiN3rd : Beautiful and incredibly moving, Storycorps. Keep up the amazing,  life-changing work!

O.H.T : Incredible.

Mattteus : remorse and forgiveness, we'd all be better people if we let ourselves feel these emotions

pentuplemintgum666 : I bought a knife the other day. I was surprised how easy it was. I've never used one before. They didn't even ask if I was trained. The guy even threw in a sharpener... for free.

Chase Listorti : Keep in mind this was 25 years ago

_.poser.kyle. _ : (Guns get banned) i bought a gun of the darkweb because criminals are going to make or have or sell guns any way and its just a matter of if your going to be able to defend yourself with your own gun that day... they didn’t even ask for my name it was so easy came in the mail 3 days later... first time buying and shooting... im so lucky that no one had a gun because now i can just shoot everyone without chance of anyone getting to defend themselfs

Truth Seeker : I am from Great Barrington and was 13 at the time of this. Amazing strength by that Mr. Gibson.

Draven Williams : I'm not crying you're crying be quiet😢

5Mariner : RIP Galen Gibson RIP Nacunan Saez

Benjamin Luu : The part that got to me was when the murderer started to cry, it was powerful.

ajnode : What an incredible video.

Tech stuff : Every to be school shooter should watch this video.

Of Herbs and Alters : Fake Story for the fake news mind-control.

Animation Place : Wow

GTA 4 is not deep Metal Gear Solid 3 is deep : Really sucks that it's easier to buy a gun than it is to buy a car or house.

Crisis Cunt : Fake. Fake crying, horrible propaganda.

Donny Waltkins : Only time will heal the wound and rotting in prison is worse than death

DVincentW : Is this agenda toward banning weapons? I like that this video happened, but you will never ever take away the right to defend yourselves as you see fit.

EsotericOccultist : And yet these shootings are always blamed on white people.

soulfulpizza14 : Chills.

Clark Powell II : WHOA

BHP94 : Cuck

Joe A. : If it were me I’d want nothing more than to get payback. But as is the case, you often feel empty when you enact vengeance. You still lost what you lost. Only now you stooped to the level of the murderer. Forgiving is the tougher battle. And if you succeed you may not walk away feeling as empty.

lovinglife : I have respect for the school shooter not cause he killed but he said sorry and he felt it...he cried

Tyler The Crusader : fakest crying ever

YOUNG DOMIN8OR : Greg Gibson, in my opinion, is someone we should all have as a role model.

TheSusMaster : What a man, what a man! That father must be so so strong to do this. To speak to the man whom killed your lifeblood, your one and only and not break down and kill him. Massive respect towards this man.

The Melvin Man : When the killer mentions how easy it was...it was very deep and disturbing. Well made and just deep.

Vine Street : The conversation was very intense and pure. I am amazed with the father’s wisdom. Hope he continues to remain strong.

PS : I love your channel. Thank you.

YourFakeMustache : I do not believe I am a big enough of a person to have this kind of conversation without holding major contempt and anger.

Schm11 1ty : It takes a very brave soul to apologize infront and to the man whom he killed kin or familiy of,moresoover notify his and their family, and even more bravery to apologize to them infront of millions, and billions of people. Even those who also may have been struck by a death with a family member included along with the death of the accepting family to forgive for a death of one person from their family. May he rest in piece for his brave act of kindness and bravery.

James Stevens : Just Wow

mikkelmode : Beautiful!

Dave Nixon : So where's the conversation?

cmerte180 : This is heavy stuff

Aneokame : Wow.

{}Icecream Faggot{} : Imaigian being in this convo

George R : He’s manipulating him he’s telling him what he wants to hear he isn’t stupid

Declan Graham : Very saddened and heartbroken by this story, definitely big ups to both of them for having the heart to speak even after so much loss.

Hey, It's London : Why do people need guns? People can’t fight anymore sheesh

Legokid : It takes a man to accept an apologie.

Ceptecatoto : That father is incredibly strong.
