Editorial comment

The Falcon’s goals in producing this special issue of the newspaper are to memorialize Paul Lee and to provide a record of the SPU community’s response to Thursday’s tragedy. It is our hope that thoughtful coverage will contribute to the healing process.
As students and as reporters, we’ve struggled with how to approach covering this. Students on The Falcon staff have been deeply affected by the tragedy. The SPU community has shown tremendous hope, grace and faith in the aftermath of the tragedy, and we feel it is our responsibility as the student newspaper to not merely report, but to also engage in the grieving process.
Much of the work in this special issue has been contributed by members of our community. We’re thankful for their generosity, thoughtfulness and vulnerability.
