Virginia Tech

What a massive event to take place and strike so many hearts with fear, doubt, anger, and probably many questions. Those that have walked through this will never be the same. We do need to pray for them, for their families, and for the families and friends of those who have lost their lives.

I wouldn't think that just giving "answers" would seem to shut the door on this nightmare for the people that encountered this - or even those that just watch from a distance. I do want to paste an article below that someone from our church sent me - and his remarks below. I think it is a good perspective to hear while it doesn't (and is not trying to) take away the sting.

Tragedies like this often cause people to focus on all of the brutality and the countless negative aspects of the story...but there were also many acts of bravery and protection, acts of self-less sacrifice, acts of unconditional love...
For God really was there and He was not silent.
