Echoes of Virginia Tech

A Rescue from Madness

A well-written piece of one young lady's rescue, despite life-threatening injury in Norris Hall, from the chaos of April 16th, a day that will become as infamous as September 11th. A worthy read yet not for the faint of heart.
"We've been hurt," the voice whispered, terrified, into a cellphone.

On the other end of the line, Virginia Tech Police Lt. Debbi Morgan could hear gunfire. It was so loud that it sounded as if someone was shooting right into the receiver.

"Where are you?" Morgan asked, doing her best to stay calm.

"Two-Eleven Norris Hall," the voice said so softly that it was obvious to Morgan that the person did not want to be heard.
