North Illinois University

With thanks to Kellen for posting this tag, in memory of those who lost their lives at NIU yesterday afternoon, including the deranged soul who perpetrated the massacre. Also to offer condolences to those who lost a loved one, and strength to the families of the injured.


  1. I have been over there Guido ad left my message.Thankyou for the link.Take Care God Bless Kath astoriasand

  2. The news said today that he was a former outstanding student who went off his meds about two weeks ago and was acting strangely.  Makes you wonder if going on a cocktail of meds supposed to keep bi-polar under control is more dangerous than the condition without meds, atleast for the unsuspecting public.  That has been the seeming basis for rampages many times.  The mentally ill guy Aaron who terrorized us here was supposed to be off his meds.  Another one in here I know kept falling down on hers until she broke her ankle in five places, requiring extensive pain killers besides those meds which later culminated in trips to emergency for overdose until she came within one whisk of dying, and told she wasn't bi-polar after all and taken off all!  What is this?   Gerry

  3. Hello. I wanted to thank you for posting this. I heard about the shooting and I am still thinking about it. It is sad to hear that these shooting's keep happening at different Universities. I wonder if any of the candidates will work on putting restrictions on guns on a federal level but I doubt it.

    I do want to offer my condolences to the families and friends who lost loved ones in the shooting. Once again I would like to thank you for posting this.

  4. Such sad news again.

  5. Such a tragedy, and one I'm afraid we're going to see more and more often.

  6. It's Northern University sorry to correct you.  The tag is wonderful.  I proudly have the Huskie clung to my back window in my car.  My daughter will still transfer there in a year, I have no fear of the place, only fear of what has happened to our youth.  I am a school bus driver and see what we are doing to our children.  No easy answers I fear.  

    thanks for the tag it's wonderful,
