Update: SJSU reacts to Mumbai attacks
SJSU’s student newspaper The Spartan Daily had amazing coverage this morning of some students whose lives were personally affected by the attacks in Mumbai, including a student whose parents worked two blocks from the attacks. Though they survived, some of his friends’ friends didn’t.
The article cites a handful of students who knew people who died. Hearing what these students have to say makes it all the more real to me, because I don’t have any personal connection to India or Mumbai in particular. That’s why I’m looking forward to hearing the “podcast open mic” that Steve Sloan is coordinating on campus in Clark Hall room 116 at 4:30 p.m. today. If you can make it and have something to say, please do.
