WTF is wrong with people. One of my sons best friends is a student there. Can't believe something like this ( although different) could happen at VT again. So sad.

Tragic.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Please keep VT in your prayers, as far as I know the gunman is still at large. I just left Blacksburg to come to my home town. I am very displeased that they aren't doing any road checks for people leaving Blacksburg, the gunman could have easily left town and could be on the run. What the hell is wrong with them?
