There was an attack at my school today.

One student was killed and three more were injured. Someone is in custody, but we don't have a motive yet. 

I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to class tomorrow. So far I've only got two assignments done out of everything I need to finish up this week, and I haven't done either of the ones due tomorrow. If I do go to class, I'll probably only get to my second one, so I'm going to try to do that assignment tonight. 

It's just so hard to focus. After I got back from class today all I could do was look up information about what had happened. There were so many rumors about intent and about similar attacks all around campus, and then a bomb threat, I couldn't focus on anything else. I just sat there, paralyzed, listening to the police scanner feed I'd found online. Most of the rumors turned out not to be true, but I'm shaken. 

Two murders in two years. My parents always warn me not to walk alone at night, but neither murder happened in the middle of the night. That girl last year was killed before 8pm, in the Spring semester. The sun hadn't even finished setting. This time it was the middle of the day. In a crowded place. In the middle of campus. None of them were walking alone.

I can't help but feel threatened. It seems like now that I'm so close to taking control, everything's threatening to take it all away from me. 

But this isn't about me. A young person lost their life today. My heart goes out to the family and I pray for the recovery of the injured students.
