Another School Tragedy

There has been another tragedy that involves education institution. This time it happened in Virginia, US. A man killed 33 peoples in Virginia Tech university (Thirty-one, including the gunman, died at Norris Hall; two died at West Ambler Johnston Hall. Fifteen other victims from Norris are being treated at area hospitals). For now, the campus is being closed for investigation by the authority. It's considered the worst school shooting in US History. In fact, there has been a lot of school shooting in the US, but most of the the victim are less than 10. Some people survive by pretending to be dead and they can tell the story to CNN about this.

The first reported shootings occurred at West Ambler Johnston Hall, a dormitory that houses 895 students. The dormitory, one of the largest residence halls on the 2,600-acre campus, is located near the drill field and stadium. The second one was at Norris Hall where it took 2 victims.

My condolence to the victim's family. I'm just hoping that this kind of tragedy will not ever happened again in the future.
