Earlier this week occurred a horrible tragedy on the campus of Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, VA. I don’t normally discuss current events of this sort on my blog, but thought this deserved attention due to my ties to the VA-Tech/Blacksburg region and the horrible nature of the events.
I spent the majority of my life in Blacksburg (from age 5) and know many people associated with the University (both students and faculty). This horrible event will never be forgotten, but Blacksburg and Virginia Tech will indeed recover. Ties within the community are strong, and people will stick together to overcome this.
My deepest condolences go out to all those affected by this event. You are all in my thoughts.
In the words of Nikki Giovanni: We are Virginia Tech. We will prevail.
