RIGHT.the abhorrent deaths of innocent people
Yesterday the President and our Gov. Time Kaine spoke to the students at Tech and last nite there was a beautiful candlelight vigil there. At the same time, all the colleges and universities in Richmond held vigils as well. I wish I could have gone but I had a meeting to attend. I'm glad to see the students pulling together. The Hokie Nation's pride is serving them well as a way to bond and support each other. I think right now, everyone in VA feels like an Honorary Hokie. Two students that died were from Richmond...and another's mother, new President of the CCF, is living here. She lost her son. So there is a lot of grief here.
On the positive note, there were so many acts of heroism that took place that is something those kids and faculty can be proud of.
I wish the freakin' media would stop trying to assign blame...from trying to blame police and faculty for not doing enough to making it sound like someone should have been able to see into the future and KNOW that kid was going to commit mass murder. Sure, he was a odd duck but no one could have known this would happen. People did what they could and that's all you can ask of anyone.
If you ever want to go to a school that is infused with pride and enthusiasm, Tech is the place. (Not to mention its a great academic school).
