I am sad.
It is a tragedy for all the human beings.
Human being is weak.
Innocent people should not die.

I come from the east of the earth.
But we are all human.
We have the same nature and heart.
We should live in peace for ever.

It won’t happen again,
never.

I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS!
TO THOSE I LOVE AND THOSE WHO LOVE ME

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have many things to see and do.
You musn’t tie yourself to me with tears.
be happy we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love each have shown
but this time I must travel alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part,
so bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you can’t see me or touch me, I’ll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear
all of my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet you with a smile and a “welcome home”.

No words could ever express what you all are going through. It will take time and alot of it. Your lives will never be the same but you can all live through the lives that were taken on that tragic day. Our thoughts are with you. Take care of yourselves and may God Bless You All!

As with the entire VT community, I am shocked and horrified by what has happened, such violence in a quiet community. Prayers and thoughts are constantly on my mind for the students and family and loved ones and police and school administrators. 
As an alumni, I couldn’t be more proud of the students, the representation of Virginia Tech and Blacksburg as it shows the amazing spirit of support and community that before this week that was once our secret alone. 
God Bless those who have passed, those healing and all those effected.

As you are aware by now the entire nation mourns for your losses due to this horrific event. We now consider these students and faculity members to be our family members too as their stories unfold. Their contributions to our nation they were unable to share will be sorely missed. Yet I have witnessed bravery and leadership in the stories of thoses left behind. The eloquence of the students interviewed for the whole world to see and hear has been impressive and your school spirit remarkable.

Please know that the thoughts and prays of many are with you and we hold you all in our hearts.

I would like to send my sincere condolences from myself and all the people in england at such a sorry tradegy and it should be noted that there is enough natural tradgedies in the world without governments throughout the world making more by starting wars.
Please pass on my sorrows to the family of the murder victims and why not ban guns like we the english do, I know it wont help stamp out these acts of rampage but it goes a hell of a long way to making sure guns stay off the streets

Yours truly
