One Day Blog Silence In Honor Of Virginia Tech Victims

On April 30th 2007, the Blogosphere will hold a One-Day Blog Silence in honor of the victims at Virginia Tech, as more than 33 people died in this US college massacre. Created by educational blogger Steli Efti, One Day Blog Silence does not mean that all of us bloggers need to set our computers aside and stop writing. Rather, it is a chance for us to post the One Day Blog graphic on our sites to show remembrance and respect for the victims and their families. No words and comments are needed.
By posting this blog silence image on our site, we are hoping that our readers will take a moment of silence and remember the victims who lost their lives that day at Virginia Tech. We also hope that this post will serve as a reminder that this tragic event must not go unnoticed. Topics pertaining to gun control legislation and school safety need to be addressed immediately.

No amount of laws can stop people from doing crazy things. Cho Seung-Hui had problems -- serious problems. And until he brought the gun on campus, he was perfectly legal. As much as we try, we will never be able to completely stop things like this from happening. We just can't. Personally, I believe that life moves on. Monday, it was tragic. Tuesday there was speculation. Wednesday there was information. Thursday there was discussion. Friday, I think many people have forgotten about it. Life moves on people. There's nothing more we can do for the VT people. Tragedy happens -- to everybody. Move on with your lives.

I work in behavioral health and we were asked to go down there and assist with grief counseling. I'm unable to go, but I know that we're sending some great people down there.

This is a good thing they're doing. This tragedy could have happened anywhere. Hopefully we'll all learn from this and look for signs of something like this happening again and prevent the next tragedy from taking place. You really have to wonder what is wrong with people these days, stuff like this keeps happening...
