I hope the media gives Mr. Wasmer and his family the privacy and respect they deserve. When Mr. Wasmer is ready to talk he will but until then, he and all of the student body, faculty and alumni are thinking about Daniel and his family as he recovers in the hospital.

I believe the article alluded that the "community" started the Facebook page. I don't think anyone meant to be intrusive or pushy. They are just grateful to Mr. Wasmer (as I am) and this is probably their way of trying to say "thank you". - that's just a guess. Sometimes people don't stop to think things through though. Maybe they should have checked with him first.
