more questions than answers

at this time, i find myself filled with more questions than answers and i would guess that you do as well. touted as the largest massacre on any U.S. campus, the events at Virginia Tech fill my heart with sadness and leave me wondering about what the current campus i work on would be operating today if the same situation befell us. a college campus can be a really interesting place to live at times like these. one gets a real sense of what is going on in the hearts and minds of college students that i am sure are asking themselves the same question, "what if this happened here?" we ask the question not in some morbid way, hoping for the same situation on this campus or in a pharissiac way, thanking God that it didn't happen here but in a way that forces us to think about how we would cope and react so that we can better understand what the campus at Virginia Tech is going through at this time. i would encourage all of us to continue to pray for the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Virginia Tech and show our support for them at this time to assist their healing and demonstrate that the world around them is here supporting them in their grief and will be here to assist them in their rebuilding.
