This is a nice gesture.
A Concert for Virginia Tech will take place on Septemeber 6th.
The performers so far are: Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Phil Vassar, and Nas
Here is a link to the information website at Virgina Tech.
I'm sure the VT community already knows about it, but it's something people should hear about because it's good news.
I like delivering good news.
Okay, enough on Cho Seung-hui and his madness, and, honestly, enough on the sorrowful Koreans.
Yes, that's a tone of anger you're getting.
There has been too little focus on the victims. I'll admit that I didn't pay much attention to them either, but this is the first day where I've actually been able to give more than a quick glance at the information.
Not enough has been focused on those 32 people who lost their lives.
So, at least for now, I'm going as far to change the set up of my blog so that they get the page all to themselves.

Reading of names
April 20: The names of the victims of the shooting at Virginia Tech are read during an interfaith prayer service.
We will continue to invent the future through our blood and tears and through all our sadness ... We are the Hokies ...
