tMR veterans are aware that The MonT-SteR has done a fair share of trash talkin’ about the Virginia Tech Hokies. But today the students, faculty, and administration of Virginia Tech have nothing but my heartfelt prayers and sympathy.
If you’re following the news at all, you probably know that an unidentified gunman went on a rampage this morning on the Blacksburg, VA campus, killing 32 and wounding 21 others. The shootings occurred in a dorm and at least two classrooms.
To the families and friends of the fallen, may the God of all comfort attend your shock and grief with the tender embrace of His Spirit. The Lord of Life cries with you today.
In the face of such horrific, senseless violence, the only other thing I know how to say at the moment is a tearful “Maranatha.”
Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
