Northern Illinois University
As I turned on the news station last night to find out why Randall Road was so backed up, I’m told “Oh yeah .. there was a shooting at Northern. She called at work today to tell her husband that he’d soon be hearing some pretty aweful news and she wanted him to know she was okay.” For a brief second I thanked God for not hearing the news of the shooting before knowing of her safety but then the sadness over this madness kicked in.
In just a few short seconds five other lives were taken and 15 were injured.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, to the grieving NIU students and to all of the communities that are now grieving.
