Virginia Tech Shootings

If you haven’t heard yet, 32 people were shot dead at Virginia Tech’s campus in what is being described as the deadliest mass shooting in US history. As a person who works with college students and a recent graduate myself, this tragedy hits very close to home.

I know it’s hard to appreciate how fragile life is. As a result, tragedies like these often shock us into making sure our loved ones know they are loved. As I have stated before, the best reason is just because. This extends to calling, emailing, texting, making plans to go out, etc. with your loved ones.

I refuse to discuss the politics of the right to bear arms or the implications of the identity of the shooter or the victims. It doesn’t really matter. 33 people died today and there is a time for everything. Now is the time to mourn and reflect.

To all the family and friends of the victims, my heart goes out to you. I pray that the initial resentment and confusion will be replaced by peace, harmony and joy.

For all of my family and friends who read The SuperSpade, I love you. Each of you enrich my life and I will continue to try and do the same.

Stay up fam,

Brandon Q.

    I echo Brandon’s statement of love and am ferverently praying for those connected in any way to those harmed, hurt, and affected by this tragedy.

    During times of crisis, let us find ways to unite instead of ways to divide.

    One Love. One II.

    Thanks Brandon for focusing on the need to pray for the victims’ family and love ones. It is truly a tragic event in history and it should open our eyes to the need to spend time with our family and friends when ever we can and try to make a point of calling, emailing or sending a card to people who mean a lot to us.

    Stay focus and never lose sight of who you are and whose you are.

    God Bless,

    Lady B.
