In Memory of the Virgina Tech University Tragedy

My heart is heavy with the senseless loss of lives. I feel a darkness, but desire to honor those who were killed with color and brightness.

That's a lovely tribute! I'm wondering why you call it West Virginia Tech? It's Virginia Tech - it's located in the western part of Virginia. I'm probably a little overly sensitive, I went there.

Oh, Nellie, I just finished a big, long post about this tragedy. Your tribute is truly fitting and lovely. And you are so right, we do need to honor those whose lives are lost by seeing, sharing and giving color and light. This is beautiful!
