Take a moment out of your day today for Virginia Tech, please.
In case you haven't heard, 32 people lost their lives yesterday in the worst shooting incident in American history at Virginia Tech college. More people were injured. And even those who were unharmed will be changed forever because of this.
To students and teachers of VT, and friends of students and teachers, all of us are supporting you. And to everyone else... if you haven't already, send your thoughts, prayers, good wishes, love, whatever you have, to the school. Anything counts.
I still can't wrap my head around this. I have a friend there, who I've already heard from, thankfully. But it's still so unreal.
Also, I've been very impressed with the support of the internet community as a whole. I'd been dreading jokes and insensitivity, and I'm very happy to see that that's not the case. Let's keep it that way, hm?
