    Default Virginia Tech Massacre

    For all of you that do not know yesturday at 7:15 am a 911 call was called to the police. There had been a shooting on the college campus of Virginia Tech. Event though my school (West Virginia University) and Virginia Tech are rivals, I am giving their families and friends all of my prayers and thoughts. For a student to do this is sickening. I am asking you all to take some time out of your day and take a minute or two for these college students. 32 individuals were killed by this person. That is 32 people of our future that will not be there anymore. These kids could have been somebody, but they were gunned down in their prime.

    It's very sad indeed, and even in this desensitized world that we live in today where violence happens all the time, it's still a shock to witness something like this. I'm sure that the campus and families will heal and move forward as we always do, but until then my prayers go out for them all.

    I will have to admit that as I watched the story unfolding on CNN and others, I cried.

    My heart, and prayers go out to the families with such a tremendous loss.

    Yes,
    I saw it on the news yesterday, and it was the topic of our Mastery Class last evening. The topic last evening was "what can be done if this happens to you?" "What can you do that will save your life?"

    So sorry to see it happen.
