Sadness and Tragedy

This day will remain in our memories for a long time to come. So far 33 people have lost their lives in what is being called the worst school shooting in U.S. history. My condolences go out to the families of those who lost loved ones today. My thoughts and prayers are for the many who will be forever changed by what they witnessed.....the students and faculty of Virgina Tech, the police and emergency responders, all of us really. This kind of tragedy is something that no one will ever understand. It is senseless. And it makes my heart hurt.

So horribly tragic. A teacher in my district has a daughter at Virginia Tech, but heard from her today that she was safe. I can't imagine what she went through until she was able to get in contact with her. My thoughts go out to all those families affected today.

Horrifying. I have a friend who teaches there, and - thank GOd - found out she is safe, but I'm sure she is far from OK.

I can't understand it.

I used to work at VT - about ten years ago - and know the campus well. It is so shocking that this could happen anywhere, but especially there...
