Someone you know, or someone who is connected to someone you know is intimately connected with the horror that occurred today at Virginia Tech. This is a day to mourn. This is a day to pray or meditate for the families and friends of those who were massacred today. This is a day to pray for the wounded. This is not the day to argue guns or issue polemics. That day will come. This is a day for quiet humility and tears. This is not the day to beat your chest and archly opine.
April is a damn cruel month.
