Moment of Silence

My heart goes out to everyone at Virginia Tech right now. I still remember my horror when I watched on television in May 2003 as a gunman attacked students and faculty at Case, but what’s happened today in Blacksburg is far worse.

Laura, I hope you’re out there and that you’re okay.

Update: I got an e-mail from Laura this morning. She’s shaken, but she’s safe. Some of those injured and killed were her friends; I can only imagine how that feels…

  • Wow – I think you and I posted quite parallel in response, huh?

  • Pretty much. I heard about the shooting in the dorm yesterday morning and had mentioned it to a couple of people, but I didn’t hear about the second incident until I got back to the office from one of my afternoon classes and my boyfriend came up to me with this strange expression and immediately hugged me.
