Our View: Student death reminds us to take care of each other

Wednesday evening, the Colorado State University family lost one of its own when it was reported that a student died in Westfall Hall. Although sometimes it seems that tragedies only occur in other places, we have been hit close to home by a tragedy of our own. As we move forward with our daily lives these next few days and into the future, we ask that you be kind to your fellow Rams. There is no way to know how many people knew the student, though it was surely more than the select few who lived in the same residence hall.

Death is an incredibly difficult thing to deal with, and many of us have been affected by it ourselves. Remember that as you come into contact with people over the next few days, realize that people are each struggling with their own issues and demons. Whether you understand it yet or not, Colorado State is a family with over 30,000 current brothers and sisters here and hundreds of thousands more around the world. Just as you would with your own immediate family, take care of those around you and be careful out there, Rams.
