Virginia Tech ShootingPosted by Nicole Sharp on 16 April 2007 at 16:31
My thoughts and sympathies are in Blacksburg, Virginia at the moment, and with the friends and family of everyone who knows someone at Virginia Tech. One of the prospective graduate students I got along with very well when she visited Cornell a month ago was from VT. She and I had a lot in common: both of us had lived all over; we'd both been in the IB program in high school; we'd both moved before our senior year of high school (thereby further complicating our IB programs); we'd both studied aerospace engineering as undergrads; and we both planned to go to Cornell for graduate school...
I sincerely hope that I hear soon that she's alright.
Edited to add: She is okay, though very shaken. Some of the people shot were her friends.
