We are all Hokies

April 18, 2007

Looks like mid-April from here on in my life is always going to be a time of memorial for me.

Twelve years ago tomorrow, I was driving from Richmond to Virginia Tech to give a presentation based on my master’s thesis research then in progress. En route, I heard the terrible news about the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, and the rest of my visit was colored by that news.

This year we have the terrible events of April 16, at Virginia Tech. My heart goes out to all Hokies and their families and loved ones. You are a strong community, and we are all with you during this time of deep grief. May you find comfort in the human family that surrounds you around the world.
