As readers of this blog may know, Terre is a friend of mine whose daughter Alexa attends Virginia Tech (as does Alexa's boyfriend, Aaron). They were there last April when the horrific massacre occurred. This past August, Ted and I met Terre, her son Trevyn, her daughter Alexa, and Alexa's boyfriend Aaron for lunch and had an absolutely WONDERFUL time!
We talked a little bit about the Virginia Tech incident during our time together and they both said that they had no trepidation about returning to school. Virginia Tech is still healing from this awful disaster, and they are so appreciative of all the thoughts and prayers that have come their way since April 16, 2007.
If you have a minute, check out this website. http://glovis.geog.vt.edu/hokiesthanktheworld/ It will be time well spent.
The event was designed by someone in the Geography Department at VT, and was scheduled for the exact time that a satelite could pick it up from space. If it all worked out right, it will be available at Google Earth, but I have not yet checked on that, to be honest.
Okay, I'm off to download Google Earth!
