By now I’m sure everyone is aware of the shooting that took place this morning at Virginia Tech. It’s on every TV station here, every radio station and the cover of every news website I’ve visited.

Virginia Tech is about 45 minutes from our home in Roanoke and our community has a lot of ties with the school. On the way back from work today I saw at least a dozen VA Tech bumber stickers, including one “VA Tech Dad” sticker. Thanks to all of you who have been calling, but neither Gretchen nor I know anyone who is currently a student or faculty at VT personally. If you’re inclined to pray, pray for the families of those who were killed, and those who still don’t know if their loved ones are alive.

Here’s a link to the live VA Tech webcam:
