Every time this happens it is like the floor has fallen out from under me. And yet I am also not surprised.

I work at a university and this is my worst nightmare. When people screech that we need to arm teachers, I get so angry and upset and scared. I am not religious, but may some kind of god be with everyone in Oregon.

I just...I don’t even know. I cannot bear to sit and continue to watch nothing done about the conditions in this country that lead to this.
