Default Oh Sh*t Girl Survived Both Columbine and Virginia Tech Shootings

Oh **** Girl Survived Both Columbine and Virginia Tech Shootings :ninja:

"Itís going to take time," Regina Rohde told Matt Lauer on TODAY. "People are living minute to minute, not being able to cope with anything. Eventually it becomes hour by hour, week by week. It takes a lot of time."

Rohde knows. Eight years ago, she was a freshman at Columbine High School in Colorado when two classmates, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, came in armed to the teeth and bent on murder.

She was in the cafeteria, the epicenter of the attack, but was one of the lucky ones who managed to escape the building even before the first calls went out to police. Twelve students died in that assault.

It took a long time, she said, to stop wondering whether every person she saw was going to attack her. But she finally got to the stage where "you can go about your daily life not constantly looking around you. Itís taken years to get to that point. [But] you never get back to that complete sense of security."

And now, on Monday morning, it was happening again. Rohde wasnít in the direct line of fire, but she knew that a gunman was on the prowl, and she found herself experiencing the same emotions as she had in 1999.

"It was a lot of the same reactions. ĎWhatís going on? Whoís hurt? Where do we go?í ó the same kind of questions that we asked ourselves" at Columbine, she said.

Oddly, she didnít immediately connShe does know what comes next, beginning with simply absorbing the enormity of whatís happened. At Columbine, she said, the media coverage sometimes made that difficult. Talking to TODAY, she said, was a difficult decision.

She understood that the media have to tell the story, but, she said, "We canít have the media always there every single moment."

Every time 20 or 30 students gathered, cameras were there recording it, she said. "We didnít feel we had the time and space we needed to be a community."

Thatís what she and her fellow Hokies will need, she said Ė "our space."ect the two experiences. "For some reason, I didnít really go back to that day eight years ago until quite a bit later," she said.

Even now, she said, "I donít think itís really hit a lot of people, yet, myself included. I havenít really come to understand yet what truly was going on."

I don't know if she's bad or good luck! She got locked between the worst two school shootings in the history of America, yet she survived both of them. I don't know seriously, is she lucky or bad luck?! other people died too.

Big deal, she attended the school, she wasn't near the shooting, she didn't "survive" the shooting
