    FIRST LET ME START BY SAYING THAT MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THE VICTIMS AT VT AND THE ENTIRE STUDENT POPULATION. HOWEVER, I FEEL THAT THE MEDIA SHOULD THINK BEFORE SPEAKING. WITH THE WAY THAT THE SITUATION IS BEING WORDED "THE WORST SCHOOL SHOOTING IN US HISTORY" IS ONLY LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN FOR SOMEONE ELSE WITH THESE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS TO "TOP" THE HORRIBLE ACT.

    This is horrible, that people have to take out their anger on every one else. No matter what the cause was, he was here for a reason, and she be able to handle his own mistakes. I wish he was still alive so that he could be punished, and hurt like everyone else and their families are.
