In The Face of Adversity, We Remain #BuckeyeStrong
At 9:56 a.m. on Monday, November 28, The Ohio State University (OSU) Emergency Management and Fire Prevention Twitter Account sent an alert they hoped they would never need to use: “Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.”

It was later revealed that Ohio State student Abdul Razak Ali Artan jumped the curb with his car, striking students and faculty, and then pulled a knife and began attacking everyone in his path.  Thankfully, OSU Police Officer Alan Horujko was nearby and immediately took action to bring down Artan in under a minute. It is through situations such as this that the bravery of our law enforcement officers is truly demonstrated.

While the investigation into the attack is ongoing, recent reports have indicated that the attack was ISIS-inspired terrorism. This only further reinforces the idea that we must establish a comprehensive strategy to not only contain, but defeat ISIS and any terrorist organization that threatens the safety of our country. As we move into a new Congress and new administration, I will continue advocating for a strategy to engage nations around the world to build a coalition and combat ISIS.

Now, as our community heals from this horrific incident, it is important that we unite together and support one another. As a graduate of The Ohio State University, I know firsthand that the resilience of the students and faculty are second to none. In the face of this adversity, I join with them in remaining #BuckeyeStrong.
