I just saw the news, what a sad event and loss of lives for these young students.
Tragic news, unbelievable "Officials tell the Associated Press the Virginia Tech death toll has risen to 31"
I lived in Blacksburg for 4 years and I am sure there are others on here who have as well. I am just sick over this. I never would have thought something so horrible could happen in a small town like that. My prayers go out to the families of the victims.
I go to Tech now and I was in a building right near there. I walked right out of a building and heard gunshots so I walked right back inside. Stayed there for a few hours, and then went back to my room. The real scary part for me is that I have a class in that building on that floor everyday of the week, and if he had been an hour later I would have been sitting in there. Reminds me of the frailty of life.
prayers out to those affected, including the family of the very disturbed young man.
The shooter had a history of mental illness?Laws in this country need to be changed so people like him have the med needed and are watched from time to time. Not just set out into the world helpless.I don't think they do a back ground check for mental illness when you buy a gun either.
