I was taking a walk at a nearby park when I heard sirens…too many for my small college town. When I tried to get back into my dorm, the door was locked. I was locked outside my school for an hour, wondering what happened. Eventually a classmate came by my hiding spot to tell me that someone had shot and killed at least three people at a factory close to the college. Some of the first responders were people I knew. It took them a long time to recover from what they’d seen.
