May God bless the fallen students and professors from Virginia Tech.  In our darkest moments, we often question why?  The only logical explanation is that God has bigger and better plans for each one of his children in Heaven.  It is extremely hard to see the video of Cho that is being ran on many of the media outlets.  It is time for us to focus on the community, school, and family members who have lost loved ones.  We must never allow such a horrible event to ever take place in our great country again.  God bless the Hokie Nation!

I had requested Virginia Tech to be put on the prayer list; may God touch, heal, and continue to be with Virginia Tech as long as the earth prevails. God bless and my condolences be with the parents.

Hello i am a Freshman in North Carolina and i plan to try to attend Virginia tech. I was in my fourth period class when the tv rang out shooting at VT i was shocked by this news. I like many others have had a great loss in my family and i think i know what they are going thru. In times of great sorrow i had one prayer that helped me get thru my tough times.

“God of all consolation,
in your unending love and mercy for us,
you turn the darkness of death into the dawn of new life.
Show compassion to your people in sorrow.
Be our refuge and our strength to lift us
from the darkness of this grief
to peace and joy in your presence.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.”

I would just like to say to the parents of all that lost their children that fateful day, my heart goes ou to you and your families.  But also, to the tortured soul of the young man who did the unspeakable act of violence.

But, most of all the people who will carry the most guilt of what this young man did will be his family and that is who we must keep in our heart and prayers.

God bless you all and know that we are thinking of you in our home.

I cannot express in words the shock and sorrow that I feel towards Monday’s events, but this pales in comparison to what the Va. Tech family must be going through.  Know that you are all in my prayers, now and forever, and that your perseverance and courage through all of this is inspirational and a model for us all. You truly are......The Hokies.  God Bless you all.

Words alone can’t express our deepest sympathy for what you are going through at this moment during such a tragic event in your lives.

We can only hope that through time, God will provide healing, you will grow stronger in your faith, and God will be glorified.

Remember...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  Isaiah 40:31

Stay strong.  We are praying daily for you.

God bless!

Words cannot express the shock, pain, and sorrow that we all feel as a result of this horrific tragedy.  Yet most of us can only imagine how much worse the hurt is for those who knew, lived, and worked with those who died--both family and friend alike.

I hope it helps in some small way to know that you all are in the thoughts and prayers of so many people.

May God give you healing and peace.

I am proud of how the students have handled themselves.

You are giving so many of us hope for the future by how you are enduring hardship and continuing to live.  Do not give up!

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14

I feel so deeply grieved for this event.  College life should be filled with fun and learning about the world.  Life on a campus is such a unique experience, and it is unthinkable that one person could not only take away young, innocent lives, but also stain the college experience of so many others.

My prayers go out to the families of those who died.  Although I don’t know you personally, I mourn with you.
