A light in the dark

I haven’t commented on the terrible tragedy that happened at Virginia Tech earlier this week because, well, this site tries to keep its sticky fingers away from the more pressing, more important news of the day. Surrenders is about fluff and fun, not death and destruction. But, in the end, I couldn’t keep ignoring the heartbreak. We are all part of this world and we all feel its pain. That the senseless hatred of one man can bring misery and pain to so many is one of the great unexplained injustices of our universe. May the victims’ families and friends, the campus of Virginia Tech and a grieving nation find the strength to heal their broken hearts and the will to believe that this world still can be a better, more peaceful place.

to all our American cousins across the water, we we equally horrified by the senseless loss of life at Virginia Tech. our thoughts are with the families, friends, fellow students and colleagues of all those who lost their lives, or were unwitting witnesses to the unfolding horror. i'm so grateful that the UK has such strict gun control laws....

Thanks, Dorothy, for posting. The crossover and connections between academia and pop culture are great, and sympathy on an occasion like this can hardly be misplaced.
