Virgina Tech Tragedy

So much has been said, reported, video tapped and sung about the tragic events at Virginia Tech that I wondered what more can be mentioned until I found the following message from September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

To the Bereaved People of the Virginia Tech Tragedy:
The members of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows
send you our love in this hour of your terrible loss.
We pray you to know that we are with you
united in the terrible shared knowledge
born of such terrible shared experience.
We will be with you through all the days ahead
as you journey through a world forever changed
by the horror of the violence
which tore into your lives
and ended forever the world
as you’ve known it.
Know we will be with you
as you return to living,
guided as we were and are
by the timeless love given and received
from those who are gone,
and in the caring of those standing beside you
in your homes, your communities, your nation,
and, in spirit, throughout the world.
Your sisters and brothers
of the September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows
