There was a shooting spree at the Virginia Tech Campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. According to the school’s web site 22 people have be confirmed dead, including the shooter. Classes have been canceled for tomorrow and today. The university has asked that all students contact their parents to let them know that they are okay. “Families wishing to reunite with the students are suggested to meet at the Inn at Virginia Tech.” The identity of the shooter and the motivation for the shooting has not yet been discovered or released. Whatever the reason, it will be of little consolation to the victims’ families and friends.
The fact that these are young people that have just entered adulthood and beginning to live their lives makes this horrible event even more tragic. Parents now have to live without the babies that they sent off to discover the world, learn new things. This is not the only time that tragedy has hit a college campus, but it has caused the most lost of life.
