She Will Moderate the Virginia Tech Comments I Make

Because I inherit the school at Arcana, I inherit the responsibilities of keeping the students there safe. And because Sandy has worked in the public relations vice of a university recently, she knows the impotence of suited businessmen pretending to be administrators of higher learning when a crisis grips them. She stated aloud this evening that she can only imagine the full mental lockdown one of those businessmen would have undergone had he been faced with a true crisis such as the one the administrators at Virginia Tech faced at 7:30 this morning...and failed to respond to until 9:30 when they sent their politically correct campus-wide e-mail to a student body already in the throes of tragedy number two.

Because her site, The Dragon, is not built to respond to political trends or pop culture, she won't be responding as blatantly as I am to even something she views as a national tragedy. As she pointed out to me, not even the horror of Columbine High School several years ago took as many lives as this massacre today. What a shame that anything should come along that overshadows that day...

There are some days, more than others, when I am thankful I'm not a part of this society. And then Sandy reminds me that you all have a God who takes everyone home and offers a powerful peace to the families left behind. May the families and friends affected by the shootings today be comforted by that peace.

"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."
--St. Matthew 5:4 (KJV)
