The Tech Shooting Post

Sometimes I just don’t know what’s wrong with some people. The horrible murders that took place this week at Virginia Tech have shaken up everyone I spoken to about it. It’s really crazy to think that something like can just ‘happen’. I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been said, and we all know how we feel, but holy crap. What is wrong with some people?

I have made sure that the people I care for in Blacksburg are safe, and knowing that makes this a little easier on me, but who am I in the big picture? 32 families have to deal with the fact that their loved ones, their sons and daughters, have been snatched away in the prime of their promising lives by this degenerate narcissist who thought his life was a freaking Tarentino movie. Disgusting.

One of the slain; Maxine Turner was someone I had met before, and while I can’t claim to have even been close to her, I know her parents and brother through Jake’s Vienna Youth Soccer team. I can’t begin to imagine what they must be going through and the extreme mix of sheer loss and maddening anger they must be swallowing. My condolences to the Turners and everyone involved in this pathetic display of how crap humans can really become.
