Video: Omar Samaha Shares His Thoughts on Virginia Tech Shootings


    Omar Samaha’s 18-year-old sister Reema was killed in the Virginia Tech shootings on April 16, 2007. He talked with Gary Nurenberg about his experience then and on Dec. 9, 2011.

    Among other things, Samaha asks, “We learned so much because of April 16…so why are we not taking those lessons now and turning them into laws and policies and regulations to try and prevent this from happening again?”  Good question. Any good answer(s)?
