This weekend on YOUR HEALTH®, we’ll be joined by gun violence prevention advocate and survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech campus shooting massacre, Colin Goddard, about his new documentary, Living for 32.
On a snowy, windy April day in Blacksburg, Virginia in 2007, young Americans pursued a college education and their teachers engaged in providing it to them. Thirty-two of them died, 17 more were wounded, and six more were injured jumping out of windows. One of those wounded was a 21-year-old senior International Studies major from Richmond, Virginia, named Colin Goddard. Goddard played a unique role in the horrific drama that played out at Virginia Tech University on that blustery April day: he was the only person within the building to call the police. By the end of the ordeal, the killer had fired at him at three separate moments during the eleven-minute assault. Goddard had been shot four times. He was later told he might not walk again, but fought his way through arduous physical therapy. And he grew a fire in his heart to do something about keeping dangerous people from having easy access to deadly weapons. “Living for 32” is his story. http://www.livingfor32.com
