My Biggest Nightmare

The night of February 13th was a horrific experience for the MSU community as a mass shooting took place on campus. The events of that night left a lasting impact on all those who were present, and the community as a whole.

Eyewitnesses have described the chaos that ensued as the shooting began. Shots rang out in rapid succession, causing panic and confusion as people tried to flee the area. Screams echoed throughout the campus as students and faculty sought refuge in buildings, classrooms, and offices.

The sound of sirens blared in the distance as emergency responders rushed to the scene. Police officers quickly descended upon the campus, their weapons drawn and ready for the worst. The air was thick with tension and fear, and it felt as though the world had come to a standstill.

As the situation unfolded, it became clear that the mass shooting was a tragedy beyond comprehension. Lives were lost and many more were injured. The sense of loss and despair that permeated the campus was palpable, and it felt as though the world would never be the same again. It is important to remember that healing is a journey that takes time. It is truly heartbreaking to think that such senseless violence can occur on a campus that is meant to be a place of learning, growth, and community. The loss of life and the injuries sustained by those affected by this tragedy is a reminder of how fragile life can be, and how important it is that we come together in times of crisis.

It is okay to take breaks from media coverage and social media to focus on self-care and healing.

As we mourn the loss of those who were taken from us too soon, we must also take action to prevent such tragedies from happening in the future. This requires us to have difficult conversations about gun violence, mental health, and other issues that contribute to these types of incidents.

Remember, healing from a mass shooting is a journey, and it is important to prioritize self-care and seek support during this difficult time. It is normal to feel a range of emotions including sadness, anger, confusion, and fear. It is important to express these feelings and seek help if needed.

"Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed, and very dear."
