Like many of you, I am in shock right now as I’m typing. It turns out that the first estimate of fatalities was woefully low. CNN is now reporting twenty dead, according to Virginia Tech police.
It appears that the first shooting took place about 7:15 a.m. Two hours later, another shooting took place with many victims. It is premature to draw any conclusions other than what is obvious — this is the most catastrophic event to occur in our Commonwealth since September 11th, 2001.
I am praying and hoping that somehow the situation is stabilized and we can find out exactly what has occurred and why it happened.
