tragic university shooting

we are deeply grieved by the devastating news of the deaths of so many students at virginia tech.  who could imagine that students wouldn't be safe as they studied and carried on with life on campus.  the tragedy is incomprehensible and we feel the distance from home so pointedly right now.

we learned of it this morning (as it is still the day of in the u.s.) and just watching a bit of the news - cnn - was maddening.  the officials of the university and the police were grilled mercilessly in these early hours of the event with unhelpful and abrasive questions.  we pray, along with many australians, for the grace and comfort of god at this time.
