The tragedy at Virginia Tech has overshadowed events over the last week. Our hearts and condolences go out to the bereaved families and the Virginia Tech Community. University students across the country and their parents have been uneasy over the past week. Universities are supposed to be open places of learning and if NASA cannot prevent a 60 year old gunman from taking hostages and shooting just days later it’s just too much to expect Campus Security to prevent such acts. The reality is that Campus security, in even the highly endowed Universities, are barely able to cope with parking issues let alone gunmen on the loose. In any event, it has been a difficult week and time will heal but as a friend who is a loyal VT Alum told me this morning, the VT Campus will never seem the same again.
