I didn't know about the Fatal Shooting At Virginia Tech but thanks to you for sharing the information - it is really awful.

I wish our television programs did not show so much violence and in this world we must enjoy each day to the fullest - life is definitely too short.

We have just heard this sad news on the UK evening news.
I am so very sorry.
What a devastating blow for all the relatives and friends. Any sudden death is hard, but death by needless violence is especially hard to come to terms with.
They will be very much in our thoughts .

I was driving my car when I heard this on the radio. I just went numb. Think of the people who have family members going to school there or are teaching there and they hear about this terrible news the way I did. My heart goes out to them all.

It is a very surreal atmosphere here in Hampton Roads. Very sad and tragic. One of the ladies at our hotel still has not heard from her son, who is a student at VT.

Very crazy.
