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.

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.

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

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

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?

Vote Obama in 08!

A new America!

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?

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

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).

same story………..again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again……..

This tragedy hits everyone. 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. Our hearts go out to the people in VA Tech. May god watch over everyone and help us all get through this tragedy
