Tragic Events at Virginia Tech Culminate in 22 Dead

Virginia Tech is now the scene if the most terrible school tragedy to occur in the U.S. At least 22 students, including the gunmen, were killed today. My prayers go out to the families of all those connected to V Tech. I have a family friend who is an alumnus and even the extended families feel this loss deeply.

You want to believe that schools, those hallowed halls of learning, can be free from such violence but violence is inescapable. It is the great leveler. No matter how learned or uneducated, how rich or poor, its dark hand covers us all.

    Death toll now up to 30 confirmed. How terrible. Lots of info pouring out but some things may not be connected. There has been two bomb threats recently according to one person interviewed on NPR. Both were directed toward buildings where a lot of engineering classes were held– the building where most of the people were killed was mainly engineering.

    I’m staying in Virginia Beach next month, any recommendations for a nice hotel on the water?
