Just before evening class, an e-mail appeared in my inbox:
"Alexandria Campus, please lock down, there is a police incident adjacent to the campus please remain in the buildings and away from the windows."
We didn't know much about the "incident" so our class started and we got to hold our final presentations (check!). Once class was over, it was apparently okay to let students out again so we left campus and weren't really affected by anything.
As it turned out, the "incident" was a suicidal, armed man in a nearby building. Whatever happened to him I do not know. Hopefully, no one got hurt.
In America – safety before anything.
