Why the Senseless acts of Violence?

The horrific and tragic shootings at Virginia Tech have broken my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 32 victims as well as the shooter's family. This senseless act of violence is a reminder that pure evil continues to exist in this world. My only wish is that the family and friends of the deceased can remember the actions of the Amish community following the horrific events that unfolded in Pennsylvania, 8 months ago. Compassion and forgivness was never an after-thought with those people. Let us not solve this violence with more violence.
