Virginia Tech tragedy

Wow! What a shock! I'm saddened that something so horrible could happen. I got on the Internet Monday to check some stuff, and I saw 20 people killed in a shooting at Virginia Tech(this was before they had the final body count). I was shocked. I went in and turned on CNN, and very shortly the number of victims went up to 29, then 32.
I watched the news the rest of the day until it was time to go to work, then I watched it again Tuesday and Wednesday. I finally had to turn it off because all they were showing were the videos the shooter had made and the pictures he had taken. If you haven't seen them, believe me, you don't want to. They are disgusting and gruesome. He calls himself a martyr and compares himself with Jesus Christ. He calls Eric and Dylan(the two Columbine shooters) his "brothers".
I can't imagine what the students and faculty and family and friends of the victims are going through right now. My prayers are with them during this hard time.
