Roseburg’s “New Normal”

↑ Roseburg residents talk about life in town two months after the Umpqua Community College shooting.

VIA OPB’S THINK OUT LOUD: It’s been two months since the Southern Oregon city of Roseburg joined a growing list of places such as Sandy Hook, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and San Bernardino, where mass shootings have claimed multiple lives and shattered a community’s sense of safety. The shooting on Oct. 1 at Umpqua Community College (UCC) left 10 people dead, including the shooter, and nine more wounded. We traveled to Roseburg this week to hear from UCC students and community members about how they are healing, what they’re still struggling with, and where they’ve seen resilience in the aftermath of this trauma.
