I don't know if this is the same teacher or not but I heard on the news that a college professor teacher died. He was a survivor of the Holocost and it is so unbeliveable that he died by a shooting in a college. He must have been a honorable man to care that much for his students. He definitely is a hero for many people.
So sorry for the lost.
Sending hugs, Trishann
So sad. My thoughts & prayers are with her family, friends & colleagues:pray:

Unfortunately this is going to be the norm for the next few days, hearing of people who know a victim or knows someone who knows a victim, etc.
Regardless of how its affecting someone, its still so incredibly sad.
I'm here in VA surrounded by VT graduates, students, etc; 2 of the deceased are from my immediate area.
The whole thing is beyond comprehension, to think that someone had reached a point in their life where they felt it was a rational decision to destroy the lives of so many people. So incredibly sad.

Debbie, My heart goes out to the Ontario family of the professor. :pray: My prayer is that we find a way to recognize when help is needed for violators before it's too late, and we find a way to bring up the children without all the anger that is so present these days.:confused: suebee
