We just learned via CNN of the terrible shootings that happened today just a few hours down I-81 from Harrisonburg. We have friends on the faculty there and hope they are ok. Our students have friends attending Tech and are anxiously awaiting word.
I was across the street at a pub tonight and people there were talking about it too. They thought it was significant that there was an airport there and thought it was just for the university. I tried to explain that Blacksburg is an isolated place that would need its own airport, but it's isolated in a way that is hard to explain to someone here.
Anyway, I'm rambling. We're glued to CNN. This could have been JMU. It's so awful.
