Statement via the us Board of Directors on Umpqua Community College Shooting
Today, we dangle in reminiscence the lives of scholars and professors that had been misplaced at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Instead of with the ability to practice their desires of pursuing upper training, their lives had been lower brief in but every other horrific and violent gun-related assault on scholars.
Tragic occasions akin to this are reminders of our fragility as people and the privileges we need to be alive, smartly, and finding out . The United States Student Association extends our love and improve to the households and buddies of the ones misplaced. Earlier this week, President Barack Obama addressed the country via announcing “…In the coming days we will learn about the victims. The people who were studying and learning and working hard, their eyes set on the future, their dreams on what they make in their lives… Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough.”
We follow a second of silence with scholars around the nation which are conserving vigils in honor of the scholars who had been misplaced. This observation is an act of unity, person who we all know will also be just a small a part of the combat to finish the alarming build up of violent gun-related assaults on scholars.
