A sea of people wearing orange and maroon flowed onto the main lawn at Virginia Tech on Wednesday, some clutching single roses, to remember the victims of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
They gathered on the same field where a white candle lit at midnight began a day of mourning for the 32 people killed a year ago by a student gunman who shot himself as police closed in.
"We remain deeply and profoundly saddened by the events of that tragic day," Virginia Tech President Charles Steger told the crowd. "Indeed, all our lives were changed on that day."
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends affected by this horrendous massacre.
A member of a terrorist sympathizers forum had this to say:
Seung Hui Cho was a product of US capitalism, they create workaholics out of human beings whose sole purpose is feeding the state officials and they tell the people that they are worth nothing when they don't work and generate profit for huge companies, so when people fail they fall into emptyness, their whole world is collapsing.
What a bastage.
