Her son, Mark Taylor was only a high school student when he had sustained terrible injuries during the violent shooting spree at the Columbine school. Lying on the ground for almost 2 hours before help could arrive; Mark had suffered incredible blood loss resulting from multiple bullet wounds. He was between the cafeteria entrance and the parking lot when the two shooters opened fire. In an effort to escape the gunmen, other students actually stepped on him in their attempt to flee the shooters. An officer finally came to Mark’s aid, pulling him to safety behind a nearby shed. After the shooting, Mark had extensive hospitalization and was in and out of the hospital three times. The traumatic memory of that day will always remain with Mark Taylor. It is difficult to forget the memories of the shooting and lying there helpless for two hours with bullets whizzing around him while he lay bleeding from nearly a dozen bullet wounds. Some bullets still even now remain embedded in his spine and near his aorta. Because of the way the bullets ravaged Mark’s body, it was even impossible for the surgeons to count the wounds. The estimated bullet count ranges from 8 to 13.

Miraculously, Mark showed courage, strength and resiliency and eventually went on to a full medical recovery. With his mother’s support and love, Mark even wrote a book about his experience and went on a book tour. His book in which he recounts not only the horror of that day but also his own pathway to recovery is called "I Asked, God Answered " a Columbine miracle." His book is about his spiritual journey and forgiveness. He has forgiven shooters Harris and Dylan Klebold and their families. Mark Taylor was even was brave enough to testify before the FDA about the dangers of these anti-depressant and SSRI drugs. Mark appeared in Michael Moore’s 2002 documentary film ’Bowling for Columbine’.

Because of the notoriety of the case, Mark Taylor was interviewed on numerous television broadcasts and his story in public eye. Mark Taylor sued Solvay Pharmaceuticals, saying that their anti-depressant Luvox made Eric Harris psychotic and violent.
