As a VT Alumni, I want all my brother and sister Hokies to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.  It is a sad time when you walk around your home in fear.  That is what VT is, Home.  Whether you attend VT or not, everyone has always been welcome.  I will miss those we lost, and am greatful for those that survived. 

Much Love to all my Hokies,

Leigh

While we pray for the victims, their families, the injured and college at large, let us not forget to pray for the first responder emergency personnel who did not hesitate in the time of crisis.
My heart goes out to the men and women of VT law enforcement - the dispatchers who answered the 911 calls, the officers, paramedics and EMT’s who have, and will continue to give their utmost.
In my humble opinion, each officer and EMT/paramedic who answered the calls are angels here on earth for having endured the horror of this mass casualty and yet never faltered in providing emergency servies.
God Bless Virginia Tech.

To all of the families who have lost a loved one, our hearts and prayers are with you. As a mother, I can’t imagine sending my son off to college, to grow, to learn and mature, thinking that he will be safe, when in truth something like this can happen. Try to take solace that your children are in a better place, and maybe take this horrible event, and try and make this world a safer place for all the other children. May g-d bless you and your loved ones and the children you have lost.
