Lord have mercy... It looks like over 30 Human Beings are now dead after today's shootings at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg and more may die of wounds.  This is horrible.  :'( Some shooting was in a dorm and then later in a class building.

Lord have mercy.

I believe the death toll is up to 33 people now (including the shooter).  What a tragic day.   :(

I was following these horrible news all day today. Difficult to comprehend. And I know a couple of people at the campus there...

Lord, have mercy in this time of grief and terror. Lord, have mercy.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""
