It could have been any one of the people I love. It could have been the campus I walked for 4 years. It could have been my classmates, my friends, my boyfriends, sisters, brothers that were gunned down while sitting in class.
After I heard about the V Tech shooting, I reached out to everyone I loved. You never realize just how fragile the threads of life are until they are broken.
So I revel in the strength of the ties that bind.
It could have easily been my beloved Howard. And I am so greatful that it was not.
I pray peace over those affected by the tragedy in Virginia. I hope that they not go forward in anger and vengence but rather find the stillness of heart that comes only from learning to love that which we once took for granted.
