The World According to Maiden Fair

Tragic Valentine’s Day

Filed under: Maiden's World,Tragedys in my World — February 14, 2008 @ 8:12 pm

I got a phone call from my Grandson at 4:00 PM telling me that there had been a shooting on the campus of Northern Illinois University, where he is in school. He called to let me know that he was safe, but the really chilling thing was he had been in that classroom just shortly before the shooting. I know he’s safe, but the what might have beens will not stop running through my mind.

My heart and prayers do go out to all the families of the victims of this senseless violence. A college campus is a place for learning, for study, for research, it never was a place for voilence and senseless murder. I remember my years on campus as a time of fun and friendship and coming of age. When and where will it all end?
