There was a shooting this afternoon at the northern illinois university campus; as of now there are 18 victims; the gunman shot himself.
The campus is literally 15 minutes from my home, and I taught for 7 years in the public school system in DeKalb; several friends and colleagues are associated with NIU. Please keep them in your thoughts!
Those poor families of those who were hurt! My thoughts go out to them and all involved. I just have to wonder why these things have been happening more and more often ... is it the media coverage, or are we becoming that much more violent as a society? What gets someone to that point where that is the only option?
