A Message from Dr. DeSanctis Regarding Shooting in Boulder

Dear CityHawks,

Today I am reminded of the fragility of life. The violence inflicted in our state this week deeply saddens me and I offer my sincere condolences to the families and friends of those lost in yesterday’s shootings.

While I am new to Colorado, I realize that our CCD community has students, faculty and staff that live in or near Boulder and today I mourn the senseless loss of life with them.

If you are grieving, I encourage you to reach out for support:

These are difficult times and it’s not just COVID-19 that’s a threat. Let’s all remember not to take today for granted.

Tomorrow is never promised, tell those you love that you love them today.
