The Tragedy at Virginia Tech - No Politics

The tragedy at Virginia Tech is terrible. There's no politicizing this.

George Bush will do what presidents have done in the past, to lead the nation through heart break. Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, and Gerald Ford have all had this role in my lifetime.

We have had, at least, Iranian hostages, 9-11, the OK bombing, the Columbine High School massacre, and other national tragedies.

If you pray, pray for those students at Virginia Tech, and all those involved, including the killer's family. They never planned to raise a murderer. And pray for President Bush, the school leaders, the media, the governor and other politicians in VA.

With sadness, we will watch this on the news, and be forced into thinking about this. Then, we'll move on.
