BLACKSBURG, VA --
Virginia Tech President Charles Steger has sent out the following letter to the campus community, regarding the tragedy at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut:
We of the greater Virginia Tech community know, from our experience, of the unending sorrow and horror that has now descended on the Newtown, Conn., community. No words can express how they now feel over this senseless and insane tragedy. Our words seem so inadequate in light of their plight. Still, we extend our deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Newtown community as it begins to cope with their grief and blackness.
Charles W. Steger
