I doubt this is the correct forum, but as the mother of a 2004 & 2005 alumni, and Marching Virginians alumni - I feel compelled to write. I am heart broken for the victims and their families. I can’t imagine how I would feel if my son and daughter were still there and I couldn’t get in touch with them. As a member of the VT family, I want to extend my heart and prayers to everyone, I wish I could be there to help. I even thought about grabbing my scrub uniforms, my nursing license and heading to the hospital to help, but they didn’t need to have to take the time to verify my status when they had so much going on. I am an Emergency Nurse, so I understand what they are going through. The hospital staffs will too need counseling after this horror. Even though my two are no longer there, my daughter in law’s brother is, and numberous others that we know. It is difficult to describe how I feel. The entire VT family, including students and their families, staff, the police, and rescue staff, and all others are in my heart and prayers, and will remain there.

April 16, 2007 • #34935

I would like for everyone there to know that I am praying for them. We all know that God hears all prayers and I have asked people in rooms that I visit on the internet to also please keep you in prayers as well. God bless you all.

Father, I come to ask that You please strengthen the families that are going through this terrible tradgey at this time. Surround them with Your loving arms, hold them in your hands, help them to heal and live a stronger life. I know that You hear all prayers and I thank You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Hello,

My name is Scott Sandars and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I was unsure of where to email on this subject.

I would like to offer my condolenses to the students, staff and families of those affected by the shootings suffered at Virginia Tech. The thoughts and prayers of Australians are with you at this very trying time.

April 16, 2007 • Melbourne, Australia • #34952

Dear VA Tech,
This for all the college students, facutly, and families. I am deeply sorry for your loss today in the tragic shootings, as is the whole nation. I am a high school student at Delmar Middle Senior High in Delaware and many of us are deeply saddened about what has happened. Chain letters, lists, and just words of prayer have been going around schools already to support those that have lost loved ones or those that are in need of help. I would just like to say that through this very hard time, the whole nation is watching with saddened hearts and if anyone ever needs just a tender word, there will always be someone there to help. I also know that God is there to watch over the injured students in the hospital and to comfort those that have just lost a loved one. Even though it seems things will never get better, Virginia Tech and people all over the U.S will grow together in a stronger bond and be able to overcome this sudden tradgedy.

Sincerely with all of my heart,

Amanda Fields

To the President of the University and the Chief of Police for the University

I can not share with you enough my sympathy for the shootings on the campus but more than that my admiration and appreciation for the information you are putting out. I’ve been watching the television coverage of your press conference and I admire the way you are conducting yourselves. I’m sorry that your abilities and decisions are being questioned, but do know, that I appreciate what you are doing and pray for you during this time as well as the deceased, their families, and the students and alumni as a whole. Bless your work and bless you. Nancy Miles

I have been watching this horror since it first came on this morning. I personally know one of the injured and a student who at last I heard is ok. I am moved to e-mail you after just seeing a press conference in which a reporter accused the Virginia Tech. President and the Police Chief of appearing, dispassionate. These men, like all of us are in shock. Unlike all of us, they need to investigate, inform victims families, and report to the press and the country on an unbelievable situation. It is time to support the students, families and faculty of Tech. , including the campus police, who Im sure, are more devastated than most of us can imagine. Rather than spend out time focusing on blame and error, let us please focus on what can be done again to avoid another incident.

April 16, 2007 • #34961

Hi,
This was the only email address I could seem to find, so I would appreciate it if you could pass this on in some way.

I live in Alameda, California and I just wanted to let you know that my heart goes out to the families, friends and the whole student body of VA Tech.

Even though I am thousands of miles away and have no relatives attending VA Tech, I am still in shock and just have this sadness in my heart.

Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. I will say a special pray tonight when I go to bed.

My sincere condolences to all of Virginia.

Respectfully,

Dearest Students At Virginia Tech, I am very, very sorry and saddened to hear what happened to your students and the masacare at your university. I am worried about the well being of your students now and you are in my prayers for the recovery of there minds and souls. You all have to go on .be strong and believe in the good of yourselves because you are still all good people. I am hoping for you all in the coming months and that you can all look to god and yourselves for peace of mind and that the strong people amongst you can be there for the weak at this time. Just an idea to help , could be to put aside a room and fill it with pastel paints, cushions and have walls free where students can just go in there at any time an paint how they feel,sit or leave aphoto of a lost friend or peom and have a volunteers in there on a roating roster to be there for greiving students. sincerest wishes Wendy

I believe that Cassell Colliseum will not hold the amount of people who would like to attend the service for their fallen peers. Cassell only holds approximately 10,000 people and I believe there will be many more than 10,000 people who would like to attend the service. Eventhough it is forecasted to be very windy tomorrow, I believe that Lane Stadium would be a much better venue for the service. I don’t care about being in the wind and I’m sure no one else will either. Thank you for your time and I only hope you can take this idea into consideration.

April 16, 2007 • #34973

We are praying for all of you.

Being the father of two daughters college age, my hearts aches over the tragedy that happened today. I was unable to work today and found myself drawn to the horror that unfolded on your campus. i ask that your administration try to understand the depth of the pain our entire country feels about the tremendous loss of innocent lives today and do everything in your power to ensure the families of those who died and injured are treated honestly, fairly, promptly, and with the caring they deserve. This is not a time for delays, cover-up, or unecessary additional pain inflicted on them. As a concerned citizen and dad, I ask that you continue to face the truth no matter how hard it may be. If there are better ways to protect our children, please employ them. Dont wait, do it now. My heart goes out to everyone at VATech and their loved ones.... Sincerely, Richard G.

My utmost sympathy goes out to your campus and your community. What a tragic incident. My prayers go out to everyone.

My Niece has a husband who was scheduled to go to work today at the campus to tutor a student, the student luckily called to cancel the appointment last night.

This is not how your community should be remembered, my sister said how nice your city was and that she thought it would be so neat to live there.

You will get through this, and our nation will get through this because you have touched the hearts of thousands of communities and campuses around the country.

God bless your school and community.
Stay together and stay strong.

My heart aches for all of you. I have a daughter who is graduating in 3 weeks from a university here in Texas. To imagine such a crime on her campus is very frightening to a parent. I’m certain that all parents and families of Virginia Tech students are mourning over their losses and are in true shock.

But for all of you that have to live through this day and the days to come, I wish you much calm and peace. Know that a nation stands behind you in prayer and support through the difficult days ahead.

The Need To Pray:

Lord, I trust you. I Cast my cares upon You, and I believe that You’re going to take care of my ( fill in the bracket with your prayer request ) situation in the name of JESUS Father, in the name of Jesus, I confess right now, and realize that I am a sinner. I repent of all my sins. I make an 180-degree turn away from all my sins. I change my heart, I change my mind, I change my direction, and I turn toward Jesus Christ. I confess with my mouth that God raised Jesus from the dead, and I believe in my heart that Jesus is alive and operates in my life. I thank you Lord that I am saved. I love you God; I love you Jesus, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH. In Jesus’ name I pray Amen.

The LORD Bless You and Keep you; The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you Peace, Love, Joy, to be Debt Free, Wealth, Riches, and Good Health for You and Your Families in the name of JESUS Amen!
Our Father Who art in heaven, hallow be thine name, thine kingdom come. Thine will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from all evil. For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever and ever in Jesus name Amen.

Heavenly Father: We thank you for your many blessings on our lives and we thank you for loving us. GOD we commission you to bless all our families; church family, home family, school family, work family, relatives, enemies, friends, missionaries, neighbors and those we care deeply for, right now. Please protect our brave men and women of the military we pray for success of the mission. GOD we commission you to please bless our military leaders and civilian authorities.

Show us a new revelation of your love and power. GOD we commission you to help us to LOVE our neighbors as ourselves. Holy Spirit, we ask you to minister to our spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, we bind the spirit of infirmity and we loose the spirit of life and the gifts of healing give us your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, we bind the spirit of fear and we loose love, power, and a sound mind. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for Your Peace and for delivering us from fear. God please release a renewed confidence through your grace. God we thank you for blessing us over the highways and byways and we pray for traveling mercies to arrive safely to our destinations. Where there is need, we commission you to fulfill our needs. This is the day the Lord has made we shall rejoice and be glad in it. Bless our homes, families, finances, our goings and our comings. GOD we thank you for giving us instructions in your word The Holy BIBLE. GOD, we commission you to please help us to help you to help us make this world a better place to live in.
