The Virginia Tech tragedies in Blacksburg, Virginia (VA) were terrible and shocking.  The lives of many bright young people were violently cut short.  John C. recently wrote an article that draws attention to the fact that the delayed response of the university in issuing a mass warning to the student body may have contributed to the high death count.  North Carolina (NC) is home to many universities as well, Duke University, Shaw University and University of North Carolina – Charlotte just to name a few.  Does your child’s school have an adequate response system?
