Prayers for Virginia Tech...Again

I was getting ready to post something I had written about the holidays.  But then I heard the news.

There has been another shooting at Virginia Tech.  A police officer was sitting in her cruiser, and the gunman walked up to the window and shot her.  (correction...she he was making a routine traffic stop.  and some rando - not the person stoped - walked up and shot her him.)  She He didn't make it.

And now there is another victim in The Cage parking lot.  (UPDATE - they didn't make it either)(UPDATE - he was the gunman & shot himself.)

What is going on?  Why is this happening?

Prayers for the students & faculty of Virginia Tech who were simply gearing up for exams.  Minding their own business.  Please keep them safe. 

Prayers for the family of the police officer.  I know they will miss her him terribly.  Prayers for the other victim's family as well. gunman's family as well.  (Not for him, mind you, because I'm still too angry to waste my prayers on him at the moment.  But I feel for his family.  How terrible to be associated with someone so evil.)

Oh my goodness I hadn't heard. The amount of terrible things that seem to happen there is heartbreaking. Have they caught the shooter? Praying for all those affected by this tragedy.

I hadn't heard about this. That's horrible. I'll never understand what possesses people to do things like this.
Prayers being sent
