I just wanted to take the time to say that my thoughts and prayers are with everyone at VT.  This is a terrible thing that has happened and I just wanted to share that there are people out there that are willing to help.  Please don’t feel that you need to handle the grief and sadness you are feeling alone.  Use your friends and family as your rock and your strength. 

It is my hope that in a couple of months the media will demonstrate and show the world how resilient VT is and how you have bounced back from this tragedy.

May the thoughts of joy and fun times of your lost loved ones live on forever and know that I am pulling for the VT family to strive and reach their fullest potentials!

God Bless!

"Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows” 2 Corinthians 1:2-5

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want, He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever”. Psalms 23

May these words of truth find you comfort and a light in your darkness.

I was shocked when I heard the news about the shooting at virginia tech, it was so weird while I watched tv the night and heard new facts comming in other people the other day didn’t know what happend in the United States, it’s just painfull to see students cry while the lives of people here just keep going.
There are many people who wish they could help everyone over there but I know we can’t really do allot.
I just hope everyone over there finds the strength to continue, I really wish the words of all people will help you with that process.

Even though I and others with me live on the other side of the world we still want you to know, we want you to be strong and support eachother.
