Virginia Tech

Thank you, Delia, for your beautful words. It is so hard to comprehend the horror visited on the innocent students and their teachers. We have very strict gun laws in Canada but when an insane man - and they are all men - wants a gun, he will find one and use it. We are as shaken as our American friends at the tragedy inflicted on that extraordinary college. Losing a child is the worst pain. My husband and I know that all too well. But to have a child murdered is an agony that must be borne. There is no escape. My heart aches for the parents, the siblings, the aunts, uncles and cousins.
