Virginia Tech Massacre - Waleed Shaalan

 

Waleed Shaalan
By Nelson Swaim

They say I died a hero

They say that if not for me,

The other student would be gone as well,

But I just did what I knew had to be done.

I had everything to live for:

A wife, and infant son, and a jumpstart in life,

But I will never get to see my family's faces again.

I will never get to see my homeland again,

And I will not get to see my son grow up into a man,

But I am in a better place now.
