Theories come later; now, just pray 

I was in class from about 4:30 to after 8, and only when I got in the car afterwards did I hear of the shootings at Northern Illinois. My first thought getting home was to see if Stephen was OK. He is, and has a full report.

I have no words of wisdom; what was said after Virginia Tech continues to apply. We're a big and open place, and you wouldn't want a university to be anything else. Sometimes the rest of the world wanders into what we think is our retreat from it.
