My thoughts and prayers this morning are with those grieving following yesterday's tragedy at Virginia Tech. I've heard many gruesome stories from students who barricaded doors and heard the gunman outside, or others who jumped from the third floor, or others who survived in rooms where most were shot, with blood covering the floors. College campuses are open, and violent actions such as unfolded yesterday would be difficult to prevent. As information is being released so slowly, even though I understand the risk of spreading false rumors, I wish there would be more transparency.
