"Schools should be places of safety and sanctuary and learning. When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every American classroom and every American community.

"Today our nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones at Virginia Tech. We hold the victims in our hearts, we lift them up in our prayers, and we ask a loving God to comfort those who are suffering today." — President Bush.

  3. I haven't been by the memorial - we are in Blacksburg when we visit my parents, but we just haven't made it by. Nice pictures!

  4. Looks like a very moving memorial. My wife went to school there and she was very upset by the horror of that day.

  8. Lovely tribute to a senseless and (in my humble opinion) preventable tragedy. But that's another can of worms. I hope this beautiful memorial brings some peace to the victims' families.
