Watching For The Signs

Last week at Henry Ford Community College a tragedy occured. On Friday April 10, 2009, 20 year old Asia McGowen was murdered in a classroom by alleged ex-boyfriend Anthony Powell, who in turn killed himself. i don't want to do too much speculation about this incident, but what I want to say to everyone is that you have to watch out for the signs. Unfortunately there are some mentally disturbed people out here and no matter how many petitions I circulate we can not make them wear t-shirts that say "Beware for crazy" but there are many other ways that you can tell if a person has mental issues that could in turn be dangerous for you. If a person tells you that they wont feel complete without you or that they can't live without you...ding ding ding! If they tell you that you are the best thing that has ever happened to them...caution! These are just a few of the warning signs. Also we have to be careful of how people feel and their emotions.
Also when we are on college campuses we need to be aware of the safety precautions. I used to tell my fiance almost every morning how unsafe I thought the campus was because of lack of proper security. I think he felt just the same way as the school did, because it was a community college nothing like that would ever happen and that only happens at major university's. Well now what?!
With that said...R.I.P Asia you will be remembered
