      there are some things that need to be tweaked, but all in all the response was incredible. To those of you with loved ones who seem despondent or troubled...let them know there are people who love them and who want to help. Let them know they are not alone. To all who have kids, especially teens: hug your kids and tell them you love them. Let an "I love you" be the words they hear out of your mouths when they leave for school...

      The original text message the students received was unclear, stating only that a gunman was on campus. The university Web site at that time also indicated the school was open. It wasn't until I called University Police after my daughter at UT phoned me, that she learned the campus was in lockdown. The first message should have been urgent, concise and clear. Thank you.
