You're in High School Again...

There was a shooting incident at Concordia last night. It didn't even phase me. I was told that it was over 20 dollars. The guys were roomates. It started out as a beat-down. About 13 guys jumped on a guy, according to the accounts I heard. I didn't realize it at the time, but the guy was in one of my classes last semester. It felt so much like being at 'Sammahoy'. I felt like I was 'in high school again' for real.

It pisses me off, too. There are a lot of smart kids that go to Concordia. There are kids there who've risked life and limb to come thousands of miles around the world to the US to get an education. They lived in places where roving bands of militants walk the streets carrying AK-47s. They come here to find a peaceful place to study and learn, and here we are, shooting at one another.
