Virginia Tech update on a personal note...

The kids from my church (including the pastor's son!) who attend Virginia Tech are okay. The parents of one girl went down to the school to get her and they're on their way home. She's a lovely girl who helps out in bell choir when she's home. I'm very relieved that she and the others are okay, but God knows how they're all going to deal with this. We will probably have a special prayer service on Wednesday.

33 dead now. And it's officially the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. What a thing for people to think of when they think of Virginia Tech, an excellent school.

That is very good to hear. My cousin, a professor in the engineering department, is also okay. Our family called my mother, who was understandably quite relieved.

Indeed, that is a terrible legacy for VT. :^(

If this doesn't revive the debate on gun control, I'll be sorely pissed.

Glad to hear they are alright. Pure insanity today. Just absolutely disgusting.
