NIU shooting.... Prayers Please!!
Please keep the NIU students in your prayers. There was a school shooting yesterday. I have tons of friends who go to NIU and its just a big mess today. Some say 6 people died and others say 7 died. I've contacted a few friends, but they can't get any information either. We are still waiting to find out who is still in the hospital.

it's horrible - just horrible !! NO ONE should be so sick they shoot others 'just because' - I know it's hard on the shooters family too and this will sound terrible - but when I hear these things and the shooter does kill him/her self - I'm GLAD they did. The pain they inflicted on innocent people is just too much for them to take up any more air on this earth. I do feel sorry for his family but OMG - look what he did !
I read he went off his medication - but that's no solace for the familes and friends who lost someone.... What can be so bad that people have to 'take out' others like this ? I'll never understand that.
My prayers are with all who lost someone.

It is horrible. They are saying 6 including the shooter now died. They had counted a person who was transferred to another hospital and they incorrectly said the person died. I just am heartsick for all those families. My dtr has friends that go there but they are all ok, just shook up.

I am so saddened by the NIU shootings. I teach at a University here in NY and we had a department meeting today about this. It's getting so scary to walk into a classroom and teach anymore.
As educators we are trained to identify warning signals but it seems so random that we all worry about when it's our turn.
