  • sue

    This hit close to home, my best friends niece is a junior at VT. She is terrified to go back to class. My thoughts and prayers of heartfelt sympathy are with them and their families. GOD BLESS

  • hd

    i’m wondering where this kid’s parents are doing about this…

    God Bless for all the parents and students of va tech.

  • coalharbourqt

    Virtual handholding and prayers from me too. Such a tragic event. There is just too much hating and violence in this world today.

    Please don’t hate on this kid’s parents – I am sure they are absolutely horrified and devastated at what their son has done. They have lost a loved one too. From what I just saw on CNN, they seemed to be very congenial, hardworking people just trying to make a better life for themselves. Violence like this is always senseless.

  • reality

    This happens again and again and again……..and it will continue in the future: it’s America. really, if people there were so concerened they would stop the sale of firearms. But they won’t. The NRA has a stranglehold on US politics, so the murder rate will continue to be the highest in the civilized world etc…. Americans seem to like living at the mercy of the lowest common denominator.

  • reality

    instead of handholding why don’t you vote for an intelligent President who is more about defense than violence ? This person killed 33 people. That is horrible. What is worse is that single incident gun deaths OCCUR EVERY DAY NEEDLESSLY AND ARE IGNORED BY THE MEDIA. Check out the facts: http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/TUTORIAL/GUNS/GUNSTAT.html

  • Nancy

    My heart goes out to everyone. God bless….we need love in th world….it is filled with hate.

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    This is awful.

    What makes someone do this?

    FYI: 9mm guns have some of the cheaper bullets buyable. Gun control anyone? Awful. Awful.

    And this psycho above, what is his motivation? Where does this come from?

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    Vote Obama in 08!

    A new America!

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    May the those who have died rest in eternal peace. And may their families find solace in the wishes we all send out to them.

    Can we send money anywhere to victims’ families? Is there a fund set up?

  • Sophie

    What’s up with you American’s you have a bad day and go shooting up a school I ain’t surprised by this as sad as it is.
    You need to get laws like the UK where it is really hard to get hold of guns.
    R.I.P

  • Erin

    The only thing gun control does is take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. The people who would go on these shooting rampages don’t care if it’s illegal to own a gun- these are premeditated acts- if guns were illegal in the US or Virginia he would have found it somewhere else, or purchased it illegally.

    I’m from Virginia and come from a huge tech family (7 cousins who attended)…this hits incredibly close to home. No one is really to blame in this tragedy. His parents didn’t cause this, the police responded the best that they could. Yes, in retrospect, if you changed A, B, and C, things could have been different, and Lord knows I wish things were different. That doesn’t mean that the president and police department should be held accountable for this student’s rage, and the untimely deaths of the other 32 students. The media brings terrible images into our homes on an almost constant basis- but to blame the media is a cop-out.

    I have personally been donating through funds that my cousins who are alumni set up- there are a whole bunch of alumni based funds for the families of those whose lives were lost.

    Everyone affected by this senseless tragedy is in my prayers.

    There is a season for everything…today is a day for mourning and reflection.

    While changing laws and Presidents may prevent future mass shootings, we live in a world that has access to the technology to make guns out of pens. If angered enough, people will always find a way to kill people. I say we go deeper than the law and go deeper into our hearts and ask how kindness and love towards one another can prevent the motivation to do such horrible things. Kill the thought with the thought with kindness and you will make the weapon obsolete.

    hey sophie agree with you , but like I’m sure you know their has been a spate of shootings and killings in London recently, I know it’s not on the same magnitude but I feel that law kinda need to be changed everywhere, or better still maybe people need to stop making guns (in a perfect world- but not gonna happen). Anyway my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victim’s families, and to all those who died R.I.P, may you find eternal peace with God.
    Ps. I do think the US needs to revise it’s whole constitution(sp).

I hits me because i’m in college even though they are on the other coast. students at my college are in pain that people who are trying to achieve the same goal as us were taken away in an instant.

    My heart goes out to all the victims families. Nobody knows what the killer was feeling or going through, but maybe every now and then we all need some kind of love and attention from our families. A hug and can smooth out a lot of rough spots in this life.

    Forgive me for your pain, sorrow, suffering and unimaginable loss.
    One egregious act of madness, of inhumanity afflicts one, afflicts many.
    Out of many one. Grief.
    Out of one,
    of the multitude of beauty may love find, grow.
    We are who we are
    because of whom we love and are loved.
    Forgive. Give. Love.

  • the real tita

    Can somebody post deaths caused by knives, by drowning and other means? Guns are only dangerous in the hands of dangerous people. Have you heard of this other would be massacre in another university that was prevented because the shooter was gunned down by other students who happened to have been armed too? No, you haven’t, have you? That is because it was only written up in two newspapers. The media never picked it up because it wasn’t good copy. Not enough tragedy and guns were used as a defense.

    This guy would have found some other way of taking other lives out because that was what he wanted to do. The Columbine shooters had pipe bombs in their arsenal too. They meant to take out as many as they can just like this one. Nothing could have stopped them once they had a plan going…not you, not the Police, not the President, not Congress, etc. because nobody knew their plans but them!!

    Reality, you are living in a bubble of stupidity with your reasoning. Think before you post!!! because there’s just no logic to it.
