As you’ve probably already heard, a gunman opened fire in a classroom on the Northern Illinois University campus today. The last thing I saw said 5 are now dead, including the gunman.
I encourage you to read up, pray like crazy for the Huskies, and support this campus and its ministries as God leads.
NIU is in the Chicago area. Apparently a non-student walked out from behind a screen in the geology class and just opened fire. Horrendous.
I was on NIU’s campus last April and will be wearing their shirt tomorrow.
