Today is the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings, and many Hokies across the country are wearing heavy hearts. It is hard to believe that so many years have passed.
It is easy to let an anniversary like this bring back horrible memories. I try to spend today thinking about the shining lights that appeared during a time of overwhelming sadness and grief…
A holocaust survivor who sacrificed his life so that his students could live.
Strangers who came to campus to give free hugs.
Our rival school supporting us.
An inspirational speech that reminded us that we will prevail.
These are just small reminders that the good in this world always seems to outweigh the evil. I love Virginia Tech, and I would not be the person I am today had I not gone there.
