Northern Illinois University

I’m sure you will all join me in expressing sorrow for all those affected by the shooting at Northern Illinois University. It’s horrible to think we were enjoying Valentine’s day yesterday when they were experiencing such trauma.

Do these shootings ever make anyone else nervous? They always seem so random, and so many teachers have been killed in school shootings over the past decade. I find lately that I have been thinking about it more and more. Just yesterday, I was walking through corcoran, noticing all of the police officers. I wondered if any of the students had ever brought a weapon to school.  And then NIU happened.

  1. Dear Allison, I share your grief at yet another university shooting. Unbearable pain for the victims’ families, friends and students, faculty and staff at NIU. How do we understand what seems incomprehensible? KES
