Remembering Isla Vista

Isla Vista

Today I was going to put up our article on one of our favorite neighborhoods in Rome but then I heard about the tragedy that occurred in Isla Vista (Santa Barbara) on Friday night.  For the past two days it has been on my mind and I cannot shake it.  It is terrible to know what happened to my beautiful community and the victims of this tragedy, to the place I called home for four years and where I met some of my best friends.  I had the time of my life in Isla Vista and I will always hold the time I spent there special in my heart.  So many wonderful people have lived and loved their time in Isla Vista and I feel that perhaps the best way to honor the victims of this tragedy is to realize that Isla Vista is a community and even when we have moved on, the town and its people will always be in our hearts.  I have been touched by the outpouring support of my classmates and know that our thoughts are with the victims and their families.

 

Love Isla Vista
