Today there was a shooting at MIT, outside of Stata.
I had an exam that ended just an hour before the shooting, and it's crazy to think that something like that could have happened so close to home. An MIT police office passed away tonight, and my thoughts and prayers go to him and his family. The police have been doing an incredible job keeping us safe. I'm sorry that a life was lost because of it.
I couldn't help but think about the shooter himself: Just turn yourself in. Don't hurt these other people. Just stop it.
Death is closer than I think, and I need to become more aware of the world around me and the idea of being "safe." It's good to be safe. Safety is not always guaranteed. I like being safe.
