I'm a student at Virginia Tech. It was a hard day. It is terrible that one of our campus police officers died today, and it hurts, because they all put themselves on the line to protect us and keep us safe. It is also terrible that someone felt that they were in a dark enough place to harm someone else. But in my opinion this school has the strongest sense of community in the world, and we're all standing together and looking out for one another.
The latest news is that they believe the second person who died, after the police officer, was actually the shooter.
