Four years ago tomorrow...

this happened.

I look back, and that day is just a blur to me.
But I remember the day after vividly.
Two of the victims of the massacre graduated from my high school. I didn't know them personally, but I know that Erin Peterson and Reema Samaha were two beautiful girls who touched a lot of people. I know this because I had heard of both of them. Erin was on the women's basketball team. Reema was involved with the theatre program. I had see her perform.
The shooter in this massacre also graduated from my high school years before.
The day after the tragedy, we gathered as a school in the football stadium to hold a memorial for the people who had died.
That day united us.
Tomorrow will mark the four year anniversary of the shooting.
Please keep the families of the victims in your heart.
But most importantly, never forget the precious life you have.


  1. That was awful & sad. Hope the families are doing better.

  2. that video gave me chills. still so sad.
