Like everyone else, I am so shocked and saddened by last night's shootings at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. So far, seven fatalities have been reported - including the shooter.
For those of you who don't know, NIU is about 30 miles west of Aurora. There are a handful of students from The Orchard who attend the school, which makes this tragedy hit home for us in a unique way.
Would you take a moment after reading this and join with me in praying for the students, faculty, and loved ones of those impacted? It means a lot.... Thank you.
