    I can’t help but have tears in my eyes when I read this edition. May all the App families have peace, may our sons and daughters be safe, happy and blessed. They are our world’s future.

    I saved my daughter who was locked up in her room, not attending classes. If it wasn’t for her roommates telling me at the final moment that she had no friends and that she was not attending classes, or finals or meeting new friends, we would have never known what was going on. I don’t understand that if the teachers notice something about a student that they don’t reach out. I also don’t understand when I made her come home, that no one frome the community has called her. She was going to the medical facility twice a week and because of HESPA, she wasn’t allowed to call me. ” She told me that she had never seen a student like her in her 30 years of working there” when I called her. I am still angry about this. But again my daughter is alive, but not necessarily supported at all by the App State community. It has been a very hard year and a half, because no one from that community is wondering where she is, how she is or when she is coming back. Ya’ll need to work on that.

    Excellent story Michael. It must be a difficult time in Boone right now and thank you for taking time to explain to the students, alumni and public those who are doing their best to help everyone process these losses of our Mountaineer family.
