Tragedy at Virginia Tech

As someone who spends every day on a college campus, usually a place somewhat sheltered from the realities of the outside world, I am finding it very difficult to grasp the tragedy that has struck the Virginia Tech community.

So much pain is caused by violent deaths, of any kind, but those of young people are particularly awful. So much potential good that these lives might have provided our world is now gone.

Please pray for all those who were killed, their families, friends, and especially the entire college community.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
And may perpetual light shine upon them.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithfully departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
