Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and the community in Connecticut. As a parent to an elementary school student, I cannot even begin to comprehend the pain and anguish those families are experiencing. Hell, as a human being, I can’t imagine the suffering. Sadly, the Virginia Tech community knows all too well the pain the Newtown community is going through. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Hokie Nation are with them on this day and the days, weeks, and months to come.
