I'm sorry. I shouldn't have posted it. I just thought people should be aware that's all.

Again, I'm sorry if I offended anyone. It wasn't my intentions.

BLACKSBURG, Va. - A 23-year-old senior from South Korea whose creative writing was so disturbing that he was referred to the school’s counseling service was behind the massacre of at least 30 people locked inside a university classroom building in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, the university said Tuesday.

When I visited my sister in Richmond last month my 14 yr old nephew was wearing a Tech hat and said it was where he wanted to go to school. I was the only one in my family who went there except for my father and I had a wave of pride wash over me. I've had emails pouring in from old Tech friends. I don't even have any t-shirts anymore but if I did I'd be wearing one today.

Our campus held a vigil last night, which I missed because I had left before the email went out. There is an interfaith service at our chapel this afternoon. At the cafeteria people were filling out cards of support to send to Tech. As in U2Dems campus, I think the mood here is very somber. Everyone seems to know someone down there.

I have been reading this thread and watching the news and I just want to express my sympathy to everyone affected. Even though I don't live in America, I want to let you know that we are all thinking of you at this time

The outpouring of support is incredible. God bless humanity's capacity to come together in difficult times.

When bad people do terrible things

We want to believe that there is something that could have been done by us to prevent it.



Sadly this often is not the case.


Given this known outcome. People are saying that there should have been an immediate shut down or lock down.


Would it have been better to have:

a. all the students fleeing the campus?

or

b. all the students running into buildings and barricading the doors?

You know what, this, this more than anything else is what's really making me want to cry. The disrespect that everyone seems to be showing in their rush to cover their own ass'. You know what, I didn't even know about the shooting before I got this email from my school:



Quote:
It is with great sadness that we learned today about the tragic shootings on Virginia Tech’s campus. While our hearts go out to that campus community, we are also mindful of perhaps some feelings of concern on our own campus. To that end, I want to reassure the entire community that TCU employs security measures that we consider to be among the best. Those measures include:

And it continues in that general direction, not mentioning what happened once. I didn't even KNOW what had happened yet, and this is the way I find out something's up? That is a load of crap in my book.

But Mia and Laura, I"m praying for you, this makes it all more real "knowing" people that are effected by this, and I hope the two of you make it through.

I'm watching the convocation now.


Brian Williams said something a moment ago that gave me chills...one of the handguns used in this massacre was the same type that Sirhan Sirhan used against Robert kennedy. That made my stomach turn even more than it already has.

There are a lot of guns in Texas.

I don't know if it is a bad thing for your school to alert people about these security measures, there is always a concern for copy cats?

Too late, Dr. Phil already pulled out the videogames are doing this to our children on Larry King last night.

Mia, I saw you on CNN last night, and you did beautifully. I started to cry when you spoke about Ryan.

Which is true, and I see the importance in updating us on what are security measures are so we're night frightened ourselves, but maybe I should've noted, this email was sent out only four hours after all this had happened, it was the first time that day I'd even been out of classes, and so I'm upset that i just got a brief note of what had happened, I don't know if that makes sense or not...anyway...I've convfused myself now.
