I was really amazed today just how many people reached out to me to express their sadness...sympathy...outrage...something...at the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech. Frankly, I didn't know some of these people knew I ever went to Tech. After all...I am living on the opposite coast and it has been a while since I was there. Just a short while. Let me put it this way...I had quite the full head of hair back then (check out my 'do below). Nevertheless, I was touched by the outpouring of concern.
Of course, I also had this horrible feeling as I watched the video footage splashed across every news site. I knew that this small, simple place where I had spent five amazing years was no longer a secret just between me and my friends. Horrific things aren't supposed to happen at OUR Virginia Tech.
I hope that this media frenzy dies down quickly, so that we can pray for our fellow Hokies...and simpler times.
I thought I would share some old photos that I took during my freshman year...1986. This is truly the most beautiful campus anywhere.
