I can´t believe it. I was at dinner when two good friends and I heard the news on television. Hours later I was sitting on my laptop not able to formulate any words, thoughts...anything.
BLACKSBURG, Va. — A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours apart before the university could grasp what was happening and warn students. The bloodbath ended with the gunman committing suicide, bringing the death toll to 33 and stamping the campus in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains with unspeakable tragedy, perhaps forever.
I felt like I had to write something. Anything. But I didn´t know how. I felt like there is nothing I can write to describe what I feel.
So I called my two friends Euripidis and Halil to talk about this tragedy and we decided that we had to do something.
So we started the One Day Blog Silence Initiative tonite in honor towards the victims of Virginia.
Silence can say more then a thousand words.
On April 30th 2007, the Blogosphere will hold a One-Day Blog Silence in honor towards the victims of Virginia. 33 died at the US college massacre.
***UPDATE: I just read this and it put tears in my eyes. Please Read Silence is a Memoriam, Not a Reason to Stop Blogging ***
