From Bears to Huskies

niu_black_ribbon.gifU.S. News’ Paper Trail [1] has compiled a list of ways students everywhere can show their support for victims of the recent shooting [2] at Northern Illinois University. Five students were killed when a 27-year-old gunman and former student opened fire in a lecture hall on Valentine’s Day–quickly drawing comparisons to last year’s Virginia Tech tragedy. The Clog’s heart goes out to those affected by the shooting.

The Paper Trail ends their post with an inevitable question:

Meanwhile, schools are once again looking inward, evaluating their own mental health and security systems and reminding students that help is available. And they are asking a question that everyone has asked too many times: Could it happen here?
