Thoughts and Prayers

This is a re-post of the Tribute Desktop created by our own 8ball last year to honor the victims of April 16th. We are still thinking of all of you and pray for your families.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the 32 innocent Hokies that lost their lives, their families and friends, those injured, the friends and families of those injured, those yet to contact their student or loved one, and the entire Hokie nation. Today is a day we will never forget, and it will take a long time to even begin to start healing. Our beloved university will never be the same. God bless each person affected today. May your family and friends find the strength to cope with this horrible tragedy.

    Think we are going to need a bigger venue than Cassell for this. It might get moved to Lane.

    Speaking of Lane, do we think the Spring Game will be cancelled, or is this an opportunity for more people to get down there and show their support.

    I’d be surprised if they still have it.

    In case anyone missed it, or wants to watch it again, Hoda Kotb provided a wonderful segment on Dateline last night.
