i know this isnt basketball related, but i am from DeKalb, where NIU is, and knew multiple people who were in the classroom. Around 1/2 the high school in DeKalb where i graduated goes on to attend NIU, so chances are there were more people i know...
please pray for the friends and family back at NIU...

I know the area well and its crazy to think something like that could happen in such a small community. When Columbine occured I was horrified but not suprised. High school can bring out the absolute worse in people. But it's surprising to see this happening at colleges.

Anyways, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.

This is really scary, because it seems this is becoming the new thing when anyone has a problem, and there is just no way to stop these random acts of violence from happening. Its scary. My prayers go out to everyone involved.

It's a horrible thing. It is so unfortunate that every time a tragedy like this happens some other wingnut gets the idea to do the same thing at a different school.
