It is hard to believe it has been three years. It is hard to believe so much time has passed since one of the worst days of our lives. Yet, the memory of it is still vivid. I still cannot walk by the Hokiestones in front of Burruss without getting emotional, sad for the 32 people that had their life taken away from them three years ago for doing nothing more than going to class or being in their dorm.
The media has forgotten, I couldn’t find a single mention of this tragic anniversary today on the various networks. But I remember. I know you remember. And today we reflect on this sadness that still stings so sharply. Hopefully it inspires me, inspires you, to do something more this year. To be thankful for the life you still have and to do something with it. But today is about those that didn’t make it, and our prayers and thoughts are with them and their family. We remember. We are Virginia Tech.
