August 10, 1999. It was a day that will never be forgotten. One man was killed. Five people - including three children - were badly injured. Six innocent human beings became targets of a gutless killer's hatred, and when that happened, an entire community was shaken to its core. What a long, strange trip it's been since the shooting at the North Valley Jewish Community Center and the murder of mail carrier Joseph Ileto on a Tuesday morning one year ago. For weeks, even months, people spoke of little else.
