We weep with those who weep.
We mourn with those who mourn.
We offer hope to those with none.
I cried during the moment of silence. The convocation, though moving, was not the cause. It was the lack of true hope found in the speakers' words. Pray that the hope of Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, would be proclaimed on the Virginia Tech campus to the students, faculty, and administration today and every day. I know there are ministers of the gospel, counselors, faculty, students who are Christians. Pray that they would comfort those in need, and if necessary, be like Job's friends, who upon arriving from a long way off, "raised their voices and wept... And they sat with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his suffering was very great."
