    WGME- Colin Goddard, V Tech Victim Speaking at USM Tonight

    BACKGROUND- Mom: My son was in the room when Cho killed himself

    Colin Goddard was mere inches from killer Cho Seung-Hui during Monday's massacre, and he heard the gunman end his own life after killing at least 30 people, Goddard's mother said.

    After bullets had been fired all around him inside a classroom at Norris Hall, Goddard, a 21-year-old international studies major, played dead as the killer stood over him, said his mother, Ann Goddard. She told her wounded son's story Wednesday as he underwent surgery.

    Yup, he's speaking at the Violence Policy Center's Dinner. I wanted to go to that dinner in protest, but it's $75 and I'm not going to spend $75 on a dinner just to argue with idiots.

    Virginia Tech survivor speaks

    PORTLAND - When Colin Goddard got up on the morning of April 16, 2007, and walked to his intermediate French class at Norris Hall on the campus of Virginia Tech, he was just another college student.

    Colin Goddard, who was shot four times in the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech, advocates for stricter gun sale laws on Wednesday in Portland

    Today, the 25-year-old resident of Washington, D.C., travels around the country advocating for stricter gun sale laws. His goal is to prevent another massacre like the one at Virginia Tech that day, when 32 faculty members and students were killed.

    Goddard, who was shot four times and still has bullet fragments in his body, is now assistant director of federal legislation for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. He was the featured speaker Wednesday night at the 11th annual Buzz Fitzgerald Award dinner, named for the former head of Bath Iron Works who died in 2002.

    The dinner at the Italian Heritage Center was hosted by Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence.

    An armed professor or other law abiding citizen properly trained may have saved Colin and the nation great pain.
