In Memorium

2 years ago today, the nation wrapped its arms around a tiny town in the Virginia mountains after a devastating tragedy. Other Virginia colleges, along with colleges everywhere, joined hands with their Hokie rivals . . .

. . . and the nation spoke with one voice, "We are all Hokies!"

Remembering the Hokies - the students, staff, and residents of Blacksburg - on this 2-year anniversary.

From the Candlelight Vigil 2 years ago, taken on the fly with my cell phone:

Some scenes of the memorials in front of Burruss Hall a year later:

We will never forget. We are Virginia Tech.

{{{Hugs}}} There is nothing I can possibly say that can make sense of such a tragedy. Know that you and your family are in our hearts and in our prayers.

Thanks Mar, but I'll pass my share to BS, his friends at VT, all the other students & staff there at the time, and mostly for the families who lost their sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers.

And yes, I wore my colors today, even though I look like a cadaver in maroon.
