God Bless you all in this time of tradegy. No one can fully know the pain and sense of loss both the victim’s families and the survivors of this event are experiencing.

A resident of Virginia since 2001, I have dreamed my children could go to Virginia Tech.  Now I would be proud and honored if they get the chance to attend this amazing school.  April 16th is my daughters birthday and she turned 9 this year. Its a very special day for out family. I now have a special place in my heart for this day for all that were killed at your school.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends, students, and faculty that were affected by this horrific tragedy.  God bless and stay strong..

Our thoughts and prayers are with your students, staff and families affected by this horrific event. Although our daughter attends another college as a freshman, we felt compelled to call her and let her know we loved her. She was shaken by this event, as the whole world has been. We can not imagine what we would do if we had lost her in such a terrible way. May you find peace in your lives.

I don’t know what to say that has not already been said. I am so sorry for all your losses. I tear up just reading the biographies of the victims and the stories of bravery that have been mentioned, so I cannot even imagine how those of you who are family members and VT students must feel. I am so sorry for your losses. I wish there were something I could do to help, I really do. Please take care of yourselves and I pray that you all find a way to heal. God bless.

I know my words are just simply words and cannot heal the forever wounds in your hearts, but I can’t help but just cry with you as I read about what happened and see the pictures of the poor souls whose lives were cut short.  All the potential, the future God had planned for these people.  I know it is hard to keep faith in such a horrible situation but this is a time when, if you allow Him, God will carry you thru.  The whole world is mourning with you.  Know that you have brothers and sisters who may not be with you physically, but we are there spiritually.  We are praying you up and I hope you can feel us with you.  May God hold you in His arms tonight as you feel so lost and torn.  I am so sorry and feel so saddened knowing what you’re going thru right now.

As an alumni living in europe for the last few years, I have often had trouble explaining to people here where I went to college as they have often never hear of tech or blacksburg.  It makes me so sad and angry to see VT gain prominence in the international media for all the wrong reasons when there are so many good things for tech to be known for.  I look back on my years there with fondness as some of the happiest years of my life and I pray that this terrible day won’t deny current students of that blessing in years to come.  All my thoughts and prayers are in blacksburg with you guys.
