To the VT students and staff and families of
the victims,

My family is praying for all of you. We as a nation have all been affected by this terrible, evil act that took the lives of so many.

The best thing I heard from the service today was to take care of yourselves and not to stress about the academics. Life is so much more important. Part of life is grieving and healing.

May God comfort you and keep you in the palm of his hand.

Sincerely,
Julie Richardson

Im sorry for the losses. I know alot of you wish you could have done something to prevent it, wishing that it was you rather than someone else close to you that you know, that are now gone. We can only do so much, and right now your friends on campus needs you to stick together more than ever. I don’t know you guys, but I do know that if I was there when it happend, I would feel the same way when I lost a good friend of mine almost a year ago. I will keep you guys in thoughts and prayers.

I am only one of many across this country and around the world who wishes to express the deep sorrow I feel for the families, students, faculty, staff and community of Virginia Tech.  May all of you gather and find the strength in each other to go on. 

Please remember that the greatest memorial you can give to the friends and teachers lost, is to continue following your life path and reach for your goals.  They would not want to see your dreams die along with theirs.

They live through you now - Make them proud!

May God keep all of you strong.

May God bless each and everyone of you that make up this great University.  I wish there was something more that my family and I could do to help extinguish the sorrow you all must feel.  We all mourn with you and we stand by you, even if from a distance.  I feel a connection to the entire Virginia Tech community and pray that each of you will know of the love and support that our entire nation feels toward you at this difficult time.

I, like many of America, kept hoping that this was a dream and would rise from my sleep with everyone being still alive. That was not the case and I too mourn for those lost, injured, and suffering. May God bless the Hokies. As a student of Texas A&M, I was proud to be able to attend our memorial service for our fellow neighbors to the north.

I am baffled how such a troubled young man can be so selffish and cruel. No one has the right to take another human life. That job belongs to God.

God speed to all of those who lost their lives on 04-16-07 and to all of the families and friends who will have to say good bye to the deceased.

April 18, 2007, 2:02am • Gilbert, Arizona • #5249

My heart goes out to all the families and friends who lost someone they loved dearly due to this senseless tragedy. I am a mother of two and knowing either one of them could go away to college and have to worryi this could happen to them is a horrible feeling. Shame on you Mr. Seung-Hui for taking your pain out on so many innocent people who were there to learn not to suffer. 

You are all in my thoughts and I hope you can recover from this because you all deserve to recover and live life again.  Much love.

I was deeply saddened to hear about the tragic shooting at Virgina Tech yesterday, my thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and those who have died as well as there families. Flags at the community college I attend were at half-mast today in honor of the fallen. Even though this tragedy did not happen at my school or even in my home state, it was the topic of many discussions at school today. It was not easy for me to get-up in the morning and go to school knowing that something like this happened yesterday. I can not even begin to imagine the pain and sorrow the students of Virgina Tech are experiencing right know. All I can say is may God bless you and grant you peace

Dear VA Tech Students,

I am myself a student from Central Michigan and I am extremely sorry at all your losses. My professors today and around the country are expressing their grief and shock that this has happened and we all wish you the very best at recovering.

You are all some of the best in our country and I sincerely hope that we, as the next generation, can work to prevent something like this from ever happening again. It should never have to happen.

Stay strong. You will have to move on, but it’s important to never forget.

DEAR VICTIMS,FAMILY,FRIENDS OF VA TECH:

Writing to extend our deepest heartfelt condolences from my family and i with you , your families and all those in grief. we were so very devastated specially me who admire that great nation to hear about this tragedy, i wish to had some magic words that could numb your pain even temporarily.I understand the anguish and disbelief you all are currently suffering. The only comfort I can give at this time is to say that the physical and emotional agony doesn’t last forever, it dims by degrees and then you will be able to only remember, with crystal clarity the joy and life you were fortunate to have experienced with them as your friends or loved ones. Those individuals will remain apart of you for the rest of your lives and in that way, they do not really leave us. You can hold them gently in your hearts. You will also find that you have an inner core of strength you did not know existed. You will continue on, studying, working and playing hard and do your very best to show your friends that you are worthy of their friendship and love.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL
GO HUKIES!!!

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Our thoughts and sympathies are with you at this terrible time.  Our schools should be places where our students can learn and grow; not places where their dreams, potential and lives are cut tragically short.  Never forget the students whose lives were lost on Monday.

no words can heal a broken heart, but may the peace that only GOD can give help you in this troubled time....may your thoughts be filled with happiness and your happy memoies of the lost, countless....with deepest sorrow----j

April 18, 2007, 2:05am • st. louis • #5277

Nothing I say or feel can bring back the loved ones lost, but I ask God that they may rest in peace and that their families and friends can feel at least a little better knowing that they are in a better place now.
I’m really really sorry that this happened.
It just really hurts me to know that those people were in their classes, just as I was this morning, teaching and learning about 36 hours ago and now theyre gone. 
Hopefully they can teach us somethings that we can learn with our hearts.  one of those lessons can be to appreciate what we have because someone can just go in and take it all away from you one day.  but that guy can’t take our spirit.
I’m praying for everyone to be strong and learn.
