…I got a call today at the radio station that asked me a simple question: “How many people were injured on Monday?” When I told her that I hadn’t really seen an answer published, the caller then asked, “Why isn’t anyone talking about them? Enough about Cho, what about the people who he hurt?”
The focus has been, rightly, on the dead and the murderer.
As we move forward, let’s hope we hear more about the 16 people who were shot and survived, about the students who threw themselves out windows to save themselves, and about the ones who saw it happen (and may have played dead to save their lives). They lived it, and will live it every day for the rest of their lives.
Let’s not lose the survivors as we mourn the lives lost.
