I don't know what to say about the NIU shootings, except that they were horrible, and I'm frightened by the recurrence of such incidents in this country.
A student on our campus was directly affected by the shootings--one of his close friends was killed--and seeing him at today's memorial service, surrounded and held by the other students, made everything terribly vivid.
Again, there's nothing I can say. I'm at a loss. This is awful, and I don't understand why it keeps on happening.
