It truly is a tragedy when someone loses a life and at such a young age.With this being his first semester at Carolina he wasn't able to truly enjoy his college experience here. I pray for his family and friends a loss like that can never be easy. We never fully understand how ones life impacts our own until they are taken from it.
I appreciate the way David Shannon's death was presented in the Daily Tar Heel. They focused on the positive details of his life, and helped the community to grieve while still supplying students with the important news regarding his death. A student death is hard on the whole Carolina community, and efforts made by student news organizations, Greek life, and service groups came together in campus' time of need to allow students the resources they need to get through a difficult time.
We never fully understand how ones life impacts our own until they are taken from it, they need to get through a difficult time.
