From the University of Bridgeport:
Living for 32 is the inspirational documentary of Colin Goddard, a survivor of the gun shooting massacre on the Virginia Tech campus in 2007. It will be shown tonight (Monday) 7 p.m. at the University of Bridgeport Cox Student Center, 244 University Avenue. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served afterwards. Goddard will be at UB to show his film and answer questions from students. Ethan Rodriquez-Torrent, a student at Yale, who is a survivor of this past summer’s shootings in Aurora, Colorado, will also be in attendance. In light of the death of a UB student due to gun violence this semester, we feel this film will be very meaningful for our students to see.
On April 16, 2007, 32 students and staff were killed in a mass shooting at Virginia Tech University. Colin Goddard, a 21-year-old International Studies major from Richmond, Virginia, was in a French class when he was shot four times during a rampage that stunned the nation.
After an arduous recovery, he returned to Virginia Tech before working with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, going undercover and wearing a hidden camera at gun shows all across America to prove how easy it is for anyone to buy a gun, with no identification, no Brady background check, and just a wad of cash.
Living for 32 chronicles Mr. Goddard’s miraculous story, and has captivated audiences across college campuses across the country.
