32 less people to help us change the world for the better

A university is a place where you will find thousands of people who will and can potentially change the world for the better but this week for 32 young people and their families their world was changed for the worse.

Universities should be a safe place where young people can experiment, test the boundaries and develop themselves in to incredible young people. No one could even imagine the horror that took place at Virginia Tech this week when one man and two guns had a devastating affect on the youth generation, America and the World.

Now the youth of today have to step up as now they are without thirty two brothers and sisters in arms in the fight to make this world a better place to be. We can’t let their deaths be for nothing we can’t let this incident stop the youth generation getting the best possible education they can as it is only with education that we will be able to help prevent incidents like this happening again and to help change the world. I’m not saying that a University of place of learning is the only way to get an education or that education is all about what you learn in books but universities are a truly unique place where you get a group of motivated and determined young people working and living together sharing off each others amazing energy.

We will never know what these 32 young people would have been capable of or achieved if the incidents at Virginia Tech didn’t happen but we all have to know what we are capable of doing to change this world for the better. 32 young people have missed out on the chance to achieve but you’re lucky you’re alive and don’t forget it don’t miss out on your chance to achieve use every day to make a positive difference to your life and the lives of those around you as you never know if it will be the last day that you will get the chance to.

These 32 young people will never be forgotten and will go down in history because of the magnitude of the recent events but these 32 young people didn’t get the chance to change the world or make history in a way that they wanted to and on their own terms.
