niu shooting victim, in his own words

As you've probably heard, last week, a man walked into a packed lecture hall at Northern Illinois University and opened fire with a shotgun, killing five people and wounding 15 others before taking his own life. One of wounded students was Harold Ng, 21, a junior communications major from Mundelein, Illinois. Here's a piece from Newsweek about his experience during the shooting, in his own words: 'This Can’t Be Real'. Sadly, we've seen way too many situations like this, just in the last year alone. One violent incident after another seems to inspire the next one, and it snowballs. When will it stop?
