I read those bios, and several of them remind me so much of my husband. Others make me think of friends of mine, or at least people I've met along the way in college. So much lost.<br><br>
To everyone affected by this, or any other senseless death for that matter--I am so very sorry, and my thoughts continue to be with all of you.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle">

Thank you for posting.<br><br>
I needed to get the scarey images of the shooter out of my head.<br><br>
I am so heart broken over it all. I wore my orange and maroon today.

Such diversity - students, professors, Americans, foreigners, people from all different ethnicities and backgrounds, they came to teach, to study...now they're gone. So sad and so senseless. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle">

<span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span>The massacre at VT <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"> was a horrible tragedy; and the media <i>neeeeeeeds</i> to stop 'glorifying' it.<br><br>
If you ever hear the media say something like "a record number died"; remember that the message a statement like that sends to people who think like this killer is: "try and beat that number - bet you can't". This, unfortunately, one of the reasons why there are copycat incidents shortly after. It's the little statements like that being made constantly; and they should choose their wording more carefully!!<br><br>
Anyways, for anyone who wants it, here's a link to the</span></span></span> <a href="http://photos-186.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v80/67/104/761680537/n761680537_304186_3180.jpg" target="_blank"><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000000;">VT Black Ribbon</span></span></span></a> <span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span>picture. Grab it while you can, because that's my Facebook display pic right now, and won't be there for ever; I just wanted to show my support for the greiving.<br><br>

I am so disappointed in MDC for deleting my previous post which was in <i><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">response</span></b></i> to this post!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">
<div>Originally Posted by <strong>fourgrtkidos</strong> <a href="/community/forum/post/7906200"><img alt="View Post" class="inlineimg" src="/community/img/forum/go_quote.gif" style="border:0px solid;"></a></div>
<div style="font-style:italic;">so sad. no reason. i wish everyone felt loved, listened to and secure so stuff like this wouldn't happen.</div>

I was not "speculating" that this troubled man's parents did not practice gentle parenting. I was simply agreeing with the previous poster that AP needs to be promoted so that people grow up "feeling loved, secure and listened to so stuff like this wouldn't happen." These were the original words that I was <b><i><span style="text-decoration:underline;">responding</span></i></b> too.<br><br>
The complaints came from people who were assuming that I was criticizing the parents of Cho. Seems like there was a lot of speculating going on in their mind, <span style="text-decoration:underline;">not mine</span>.<br><br>
I am really disappointed.
