"This had such a far reaching a fact it hit every program, every building and every grade," said Stephen Nolan, the Amsterdam Athletic Director.

That moment of silence heard earlier...the school took it before every home game in Amsterdam this week. 

They also took time out to mention victims if they had played in a respective sport.

"The coaches did an outstanding job of identifying how the individuals involved in the tragedy were associated with our programs then included them in their ceremonies" Nolan said. 

As the community continues to mourn, those here say despite such dark days there may be a lesson for us all.
