Horror in Blacksburg
I’m on the high seas cruising from Osaka to Hong Kong. I woke up Tuesday morning at 5:00 am our time (which was 5:00 pm Monday in New York) and turned on the television to find out how the stock market had done. Instead, I was horrified to hear news of what was being called “The Virginia Tech Massacre.” I was stunned. I spent five years of my life studying at Virginia Tech where I earned two graduate degrees. Blacksburg is one of my favorite places in the whole world. I absolutely love it. I also considered it one the safest places to live. I couldn’t believe this kind of horrible tragedy could occur in such a wonderful place. I extend my deepest sympathies to the families and loved ones of all the innocent victims of this terrible crime.
