On this day of killings

Lord, remember not only the men of good will, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted upon us. Remember rather the fruits we have brought, thanks to this suffering: our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the greatness of heart that has grown out of this. And when they come to judgment, let all the fruits we have bourne be their forgiveness.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims, students, and teachers at Virginia Tech, and their families. That includes the shooter, and his family. I wish I could do more, I wish more could have been done.
