"In light of today's tragic events and the uncertainty surrounding so many, I want to call on the Baylor University community - students, faculty, and staff - to join together in prayer. Let us remember especially those who have lost loved ones, those who await word of the safety of friends and family, and those who are called to lead our nation in this time of profound anxiety.
