Virginia Tech

My thoughts go out to all the families, friends and loved ones affected by this tragedy. The tragedy has had an affect on everyone and I think especially on academic communities. I don’t know personally of any students affected, but I am truly shocked and saddened that a tragedy of this magnitude has occured. It is scary to think and to see that any of our lives can be taken away at any point, and so quickly too. It’s even worse to know that this tragedy could have been prevented.

We are sad today, and we will be sad for quite a while. We are not moving on. We are embracing our mourning. We are Virginia Tech …
