Not what my post for Valentine's Day is supposed to be about but my alma mater Northern Illinois University in DeKalb is the one where the shooting today occurred. I am totally at a loss for words.
To think I sat in the same exact hall as the one where a gunman fired shots at students just an hour ago.
It's really surreal when
it happens at your alma mater,
and the place
where you met your husband.
A place where you sat
previously in that same lecture hall
17, 16, 15 years ago,
listening to a math professor drone on;
where you tried to stay awake for Citizen Kane
during Film Class,
or passed a note to a boyfriend.
Say a prayer for the victims.
