We are all God’s children no matter the color or race. There is no excuse for this tragedy. My heart and soul goes out to all of you who were affected by this. It is so sad to view this on the news,yet very hard to walk away from it. I am a mother and I feel your pain and broken heart. I feel the anger that you also may have. Please remember those lives lost will now be God’s Angels who will help everyone get thru this. Praying that VT will construct a memorial wall on campus, with all names of the lost loved ones. It would be a tribute and a way of moving on. God bless you and keep you in his care.  sharon b.

To everyone affected by this senseless tragedy, our hearts go out to you. I have cried for you and the pain and loss everyone is suffering through. These young lives had so much promise and future. The professors were so unselfish in life and died the same way. What happened on April 16th was unthinkable, disgusting, and horrific. The scary part is that this could happen anywhere. Unfortunatly, it happened at VA Tech.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and forever.

To All the Families & Friends of the Victims:
What the Bible “really” teaches about all those that have passed is that they are likened to being “asleep.” John 11:11-13
May the resurection hope sustain you for the Bible calls Jesus “the resurection and the life.” By means of his Father, Jesus will call out to those in the memorial tombs and resurrect them to a cleansed, paradise earth that is to come. John 5:28-30; 2Pe 3:13

To the families and friends of the people who lost their lives. I cried today for you and the unimaginable loss you are feeling. I am sure that I am not the only one who shed tears for you today.  I hope you know that people all around the country are keeping you in their prayers. As a country we will not soon forget this horrible event and personally I will forget. I am a college student and yesterday while sitting in a class room I counted the people in the room, there were 24. The magnitude of Monday‚Äôs horrible events set in. Your loved ones lives will not be forgotten and in some way their deaths will inspire and empower many other young adults. May you all find peace in knowing they are in a better place.
God be with you,

Parents,Staff,Students,

All of the images that are splashed all over the
T.V. do not do justice to what it must really be
like there for y’all.. Although things are not at all clear now, God will see to it that life will
again become liveable.. My family and I (John 17) (Ian 8) feel inexplicable sorrow for your loss, I personally feel at a loss and very helpless to the tragedy that has befallen this campus and this community.....  GODSPEED

April 18, 2007, 7:25pm • Langley, British Columbia, Canada • #21049

To all students, friends, family and others affected by this event,

I send my prayers your way. I know this is probably the most trying time of your life. I can only begin to even imagine the pain you are feeling. My heart is saddened to know that so many lost their lives on this past Monday. Don’t just let these students be numbers, remember each one of them, remember the impact they had in your life, remember all the good times you shared. Smile for them everyday, because now they don’t have that chance to brighten the world of others through their smiles. Don’t forget them, make a special effort to include them in your daily activities because they will be with you. Again my prayers are with you.
