The Virginia Tech massacre is a horrible event that will forever be remembered across the nation and the world. However, there once was a time when it had not yet happened. At 6:30 AM on Monday the 16th, I had woken up from a nightmare. In the nightmare, a biomedical engineering student had gone berserk and went on a shooting spree on my campus (Johns Hopkins University) while I was walking to class. I managed to escape by running away. This was in a DREAM at 6:30 AM. 45 minutes later and 250 miles away, an English major went on a shooting spree that killed 32 people.
I am not joking. I am not trying to capitalize on the grief, I myself feel immense amounts of grief and sorrow for the Virginia Tech students, even more so because of my dream. However, what I am curious about is what the dream really was. I believe it was an insane coincidence. I don’t dream about mass shootings on a regular basis, if ever.
Am I clairvoyant or was it a coincidence?
