My thoughts are with the Virginia Tech community. What a horrific loss you have suffered, please know you’re in the thoughts and prayers of many.

April 17, 2007, 7:08pm • Dallas, TX • #86

As a VT Alum who just graduated last year, this wound is very fresh and I personally knew multiple victims.  For the most part, most of my friends are ok thank god.  However, there are those that we lost and I pray for their families.  I hope against hope that we can somehow find a way to figure out why this happened and come to some sense of closure in this horrific time.  Please know that anyone who needs a shoulder to cry on can use mine anytime.  I hope that we never forget what happened here, but also that together it brings our already tight community closer into a complete family that will never be broken.  I love you all.

My heart breaks for the victims and their families.  Please watch over us now.
Remember me not in tears,
But in laughter;
Not in pain,
But in joy;
Not in fear,
But with love;
For the good times we had
Together out weigh the bad.
Hold me not in your arms,
But in your heart;
Not in body,
But rather in spirit;
For to hold me deep within your
Soul is to keep me alive forever.

A Prayer

Dear God,
Please be with those we have lost and the families they have come from. Please help us all overcome this tragedy. Lord in Heaven, help us not to be afraid of what may come in the future, and be with those who are grieving. Let us all know that You are there for us and that you will be with us and stay with us forever. Please let those who think they know what has happened but who have not experienced this know that they have no idea what others involved are going through. Dear God please remember that we love you and trust in You that you will help us in every way after this terrible tragedy.
In Your name we forever pray, Amen.

I would like first to express my condolences to the victims and the victims families that were affected by this terrible tragedy. It is sad to know that another human being would have the mental capacity to want to hurt another person. Although I do not know any of the individuals who were victims, I know that they were all wonderful people who had hopes and dreams that were chattered yesterday. I hope many laws change due to this event, so that no one else ever has to experience anything like this again!

I would like to share my condolence to the Virginia Tech Family and Students. This was a shock to me and my fellow colleague from Southern University at New Orleans. Keep your heads up and my God Bless.

I am a Hokie Alumni and am so sad over the events yesterday. My heart goes out to the victims, their families, the students, and the whole Hokie Nation. It is impossible to understand the events yesterday but I know that all the members of the Hokie Nation will come together and help each other deal with this tragedy and heal. Seeing the pictures of the students and staff attending the convocation, all dressed in orange and maroon, quickly reminded me of the pride that every Hokie seems to have about our great school. I am forever saddened by the events of 4-16-07 but never more proud of the VT family and will only continue to support VT even more. God bless you all. Scott Perkins ‘87
