Virginia Tech and Randomness

The horror of what has happened at Virginia Tech is still sending shockwaves throughout the country.

There is nothing I could say to make sense of this heinous act because it is senseless.

Tragedies like this are so frightening because of their sheer randomness. As students awakened that morning, rushing to pull on some clothes, grabbing a coffee or soda, and rushing to catch those early morning classes, they could never know the darkness of one person's heart was about to envelop their campus.

I pray that God will bring comfort for the families of those who have perished. I pray that He will heal those who are wounded. I pray that He will bring others to support those whose lives have been irrevocably changed.

Remember them as you pray today. Lift them up each time you are reminded of this. Take a few moments to call out to God on their behalf.
