The helplessness so many had to be feeling radiated through me as well. We are not safe anymore even in a community college where people come to learn life skills and job training.
When I was in class and got the first warning of a shooting, I began to feel angry. I asked myself as to why someone would do something like this.
Obama came to Roseburg High School to meet and give his condolences to the families who lost someone they loved.
I live really close to UCC and what happened there was very depressing. I lost an old friend of mine that day.
This tragic event that happened at Umpqua Community College is horrible, many lives were taken to soon, and one amazing hero risked his life to save others.
My sister-in-law would have been killed but on that particular day she had to pick up her son not ten minutes before the shooter went to the class she would have been in and shot the class up.
Many people sulked for too long; many used it as an excuse to isolate themselves and do nothing.
The UCC shooting had no effect on me in fact my top priority was keeping my grades up so I can get out of high school.
In my opinion I thought the reaction to the shooting was blown way out of proportion because shootings happen all the time.
What pissed me off the most was how Obama came here after the shooting.
