To all the students, families and faculty of Virginia Tech, please accept my heartfelt sorrow.

As an alumni (Class of 77’) I have always felt this is the best institution in our great country.

I dedicate all my thoughts and prayers and best wishes to those who are hurt by losing someone during this unbelievable tragedy. And to those who “only” had to experience their fear - take all your strength and let it not turn into hate!

I`m far away from where you are, so it is “easier” to go on living my life, doing the daily routine and keep a distance.  But still, it makes me think what might have happened to this boy, that he decided to act the way he did. No one is born with anger and hate! Why don`t we realize in time when someone needs help? And it makes me worry to see that the truth is that even good persons can turn into bad persons. I hope your laws will change that way so that even obviously good guys never have the chance again to kill so easily.

Dear Virginia Tech,

I am writing to let you know that it is not only the United States Colleges that are here for your support and who are giving you their thoughts and prayers - campuses across the world have been shocked as much as you have, and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

You are all young and strong and you should keep your dreams alive. Support each other, and know, that there are many people sending you their love from all corners of the world.

Love and Hugs
Go Hokies!

My thoughts our with families and friends that have lost loved ones in this terrible tragedy.
My cousin is a senior at Virgina Tech - she was one of the lucky ones.

April 18, 2007, 7:08am • Manchester, UK • #8177

I graduated from Virginia Tech 22 years ago.  The more I watched the coverage on television about the tragedy, the more those 22 years disappeared.  Every camera angle showed the familiar Hokie stone in the background, and reminded me of how beautiful our campus is; too beautiful for this tragedy to have happened here.
