I walked today with a heavy heart -- the same one I always tend to have when national, earth-shattering tragedies occur.
I'm not even sure what I prayed for when I heard about the terrible events that hit Virginia Tech's campus, but I do know I began praying for something, someone to comfort and touch the affected students, staff and families.
There's no way I could ever understand what those people are feeling tonight -- whether it be numbness, pain, or nausea -- but I certainly don't want to forget the value of the lives that were ruthlessly taken this morning on a quaint and normally quiet campus.
And I don't want to forget that there is a God, and He does care....even when things like this happen.
Psalm 139:17-18 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.

I am just amazed at how quickly life can be taken away from us. At least 3 mothers, and 2 grandmothers in my company were directly affected by losses at Va Tech... all I can do is pray, and be comforted knowing that God will provide some semblance of peace to those that are suffering right now.

RJ - I think it is a testament to the Spririt within you that your heart is tender toward such tragedies. I believe your prayers - in a world gone awry - made and will make a world of difference.
