Statement on Virginia Tech Shootings

December 8, 2011

Message of condolence

My condolences go out to the families of the two shooting victims at the Blacksburg campus of Virginia Tech today.

And, indeed, to the whole community of that university, as they deal with this, the second shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech in four years.

Please take a moment to think of them all—the victims, their families, and all those who are affected by such terrible incidents.
