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.

Vanessa : Gosh, that made me cry.

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.

Elias Kakar : Thats a really emotional video u got there

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

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.

O.H.T : Incredible.

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

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

Hisham Alwashali : who the f**k pushed the down-vote button???

Chase Listorti : Keep in mind this was 25 years ago

ajnode : What an incredible video.

_.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

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.

Halo me person Yeah : Wow

Hope Hurteau : sanity looks crazy to the crazy

Crisis Cunt : Fake. Fake crying, horrible propaganda.

kurz mannon : Ban Guns.

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

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.

Morley Yan : He was rejected by a girl, A killer is what he is, He planed it, & carried it out. All this bleeding heart shit will only continue more school shooting. Americans have changed nothing since "I don't like Mondays". School shootings about every 3 weeks in the States.

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

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

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

The Anime Civilian : Interesting... This is pretty deep. Stuff like this is really cool...

Crisis Cunt : Fake story like Sandyhoax, attempting at social engineering.

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

BHP94 : Cuck

Masoud T : :(


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

mikkelmode : Beautiful!

Dave Nixon : So where's the conversation?

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.

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.

cmerte180 : This is heavy stuff

soulfulpizza14 : Chills.

Aneokame : Wow.

James Stevens : Just Wow

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

pliskin100 : This some dumb shit only white ppl do LOOOOL

Bigboy123 : Mental health treatment was clearly missed. If you know someone who is struggling, do what you can to get them help. A simple note letting them know you care and recommend a Treatment Referral Helpline, 1‑877‑SAMHSA7 (1‑877‑726‑4727).


Flaming Jester : If someone ever killed my son or brother I’d fucking gut them
