…Virginia’s a peaceful place.
Then again, someone with a grudge, an arsenal, and a willingness to kill and then die can surface anywhere.
Apparently, today, one surfaced in Blacksburg.
I don’t think I know anyone there. But I know alums, and I have friends who have friends there. For everyone with someone they care about in Blacksburg, I hope that the call you get tonight is from your loved one… because the other option is just too horrible to think about.
And the next one will be called “another Virginia Tech”. That’s a scar that will live for a long, long time…
In the end, though, this shall pass. Getting there, though, is going to hurt.
