As someone who spends close to 90% of my time on a university campus, I am shocked and shaken by the shooting deaths at Virginia Tech University. I’ve been trying to put my feelings and thoughts into words over the past couple days of reflections, but I’m finding it difficult to do so.
A university is a place of higher learning. It’s a place where students and academics should feel a safety of thought, discussion, and person. This shooting underminds that.
It was a horrible event and my thoughts are with the families, friends, students, and staff of Virginia Tech and Blacksburg, Virginia.
