Words of MSU Coach Tom Izzo About Campus Shooting Are Powerful
Many have voiced words of compassion since the Michigan State University shooting, but no one has captured the essence of the moment like Coach Tom Izzo.
In Times Of Need, People Look To Words Of Compassion And Encouragement
The Michigan State University community is going through a lot right now and unfortunately, the shooting that occurred on the campus is not new to the state of Michigan, or the United State of America.
Students, friends, family, and strangers are all gathering at memorials that have been set up on the MSU campus in honor of the three lives lost and the five others that have been critically injured.
The loss of Arielle Anderson, Brian Fraser, and Alexadra Verner is unimaginable are so are the feelings of their families, friends, and teachers who were closest to them. Let's not forget the 5 students who are in critical condition and their families and friends who are waiting by their sides. There are no words at a time like this, but Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo said things in a way that may help you at least cope during this time.
MSU Basketball Coach Tom Izzo Gives The Right Speech At The Right Time
I was listening to the Free Beer and Hot Wings radio show the other morning and Gregg (Free Beer) said if you get time, watch the speech Tom Izzo made at the vigil that was held on the campus of Michigan State University.
Although Izzo's speech will not bring back the lives lost, it was well done, he showed compassion and grace and spoke from the heart as a father, a coach, and a Spartan. This speech will not fix how you feel right now but if you take the time to watch the video above, it may provide you with a glimpse at the beginning of trying to heal.
Well done Mr. Tom Izzo and thank you, sir.
