For the last 24 hours I’ve been thinking about what to say following the horrible events at Virginia Tech yesterday. There isn’t much we can do at this very moment, except to say that the victims and their loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers.
I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple of days at the beautiful Blacksburg campus. Everyone there was absolutely wonderful. I had the pleasure of talking with some of the most talented and enthusiastic students I have ever met. To have so much brilliance needlessly extinguished in such a horrific way is something I and everyone else will never forget.
Stay together Hokies. Console and look out for each other. And know that the whole world is there with you. I look forward to visiting you all again soon.
