Virginia Tech president Charles Steger has written an open letter in regards to the school shooting in Connecticut.
In 2007 a gunman killed 32 people and himself on the Blacksburg campus.
Here is Steger’s letter:
“We of the greater Virginia Tech community know, from our experience, of the unending sorrow and horror that has now descended on the Newtown, Conn., community. No words can express how they now feel over this senseless and insane tragedy. Our words seem so inadequate in light of their plight. Still, we extend our deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Newtown community as it begins to cope with their grief and blackness.”
