How is it that I’ve seen pictures of the UCSB shooter so many times now, but not once have I heard anyone mention the names of the victims.
George Chen, 19, was studying computer science. He volunteered as a camp counselor and loved working with children.
Weihan Wang, 20, know as David, was studying computer engineering and was planning on starting a business with his friends. He was supposed to go to Yellowstone later this year for his 21st birthday
Cheng Hong, 20, went by James and was also pursuing a career in computer science. He was one of those people who are quiet, but friendly with a smile that could light up the room.
Veronika Weiss was a first year student at the university, only 19. Veronika took part in cross country, baseball, swimming, and water polo while at her high school. She was a very bright young woman and specialized in math academically.
22 year old Katherine Cooper was known as Katie. She was supposed to graduate that year with a degree in art history. Katie’s friends remember her for her outgoing and energetic personality.
Chris Michaels-Martinez, 20, was a lover of baseball since. He was studying English literature and was looking forward to the possibility of studying abroad in London. He also had plans for law school after his time at the university.
These victims were real people. They had families who have been left heart broken and friends who are left wondering why the world has to be so unfair. Remember their names, not the shooter’s.
