Tragedy at VT

Virginia Tech has suffered from two separate shootings this morning on campus killing at least 20 students in the largest school shooting incident in American history. A very sobering start to the week and we can only hope and pray for the students and families. Many of us know students or alums from VT. Tech's campus is not that much different from Morgantown in a lot of respects.

"We were like, 'What's going on?' Because this definitely is a quaint town where stuff doesn't really happen. It's pretty boring here," said Heiser during a phone interview as she sat on her classroom floor.

That statement could be about WVU, Frostburg State, or hundreds of other schools.

I said pretty much the same thing yesterday. These towns like Blacksburg, Columbine, & Red Lake are very much like our own communities. Pretty scary. Don't ever take life for granted.

Thoughts go out to all the victims, families, bystanders, and everyone associated with VPI.
