The news from Virginia Tech is horrifying. Several of the blogs I try to read daily have featured links to news about the shootings. Check out Collegiate Times, The Roanoke Times and Newschannel10. My thoughts and prayers are with those who are grieving the loss of a friend or family member.

My wife and I know some Virginia Tech alumni, including one of her brothers, one of her sisters and a few of my cousins. Our daughter has a friend from pre-school who is now a student there. She was able to find out that her friend was okay via IM. Several news stories are reporting how news spread over the Internet through instant messages, email and Facebook. Virginia Tech is one of the first schools our son has visited as he begins his college search. He seems to be handling the news of the tragedy but I am concerned about how it might affect him in the future.

I'm just sick over what happened yesterday in Virginia. I can't understand how someone gets to that point of hopelessness. It's incredibly sad. My little world was shaken by it because I mistakenly believed that by college age I'd have started to relax a bit. Sending your child off to school should be liberating, just knowing the kids are pretty much taking care of themselves. A parent can never stop worrying or praying for their children.
