It was five years ago today, Feb. 14, 2008, that Liz and I were shocked to hear that there had been mass murders at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, right on the Lincoln Highway (Il-38).
I'm hoping the site of the killings, where five students died, Cole Hall, will be visited by those Lincoln Highway/old road enthusiasts during the Illinois LH Motor Tour in May and those on their way to the Lincoln Highway Centennial in Kearney, Nebraska, toward the end of June, will make a stop.
Cole Hall has been completely renovated and a fitting memorial made outside the buildings.
Today, there will be a memorial service at the site and wreaths will be laid.
A Sad Time.
