Jeffrey, William, Sandra, and Allison, you will never be forgotten. Although I was not in the crowd on the Commons, I was on campus nearby during the time of the shootings. It is a day I will never forget.

People need to remember this, to keep intact the ability to have free speech and express themselves.
A dark moment indeed.....
