Five days have passed since the shooting at Virginia Tech. It has been a long a draining five days. I can only assume that it has been much longer and much more draining for those closer to the situation.
At times like this I wish I had something profound to write… but words still fail me. I find that all I have done and all I can do is simply turn my heart toward Jesus and ask him to be King.

Finally, I just read VT’s policy for students regarding the remainder of the semester.
