Thank you very much to those of you that expressed concern this week; to those of you that don’t know, I graduated from Virginia Tech in 1985. It’s been a tough week for everyone; we’re all realizing that deep down we’re all connected. There is nothing more difficult to deal with than young lives lost. Our hearts go out to the friends, family, faculty staff, everyone that is connected in any way to this tragedy. It’s difficult to know what to say to one another in the tide of something so sad that will ring true and not sound trite in some way. It’s too great a loss so let us only say, or just feel that we are grieving together.
