There was a flurry of activity this morning on the SLED listserv as news of the tragic event at Virginia Tech spread. Several of our fellow SLED members work at Virginia Tech. One of them soon replied that they were fine, and were not directly in harms way. Members of the listserv breathed a collective sigh of relief at this news. This is a horrible and tragic event that will impact the entire nation.
A memorial has been constructed on the Main Grid where people can drop flowers, light a candle, or just visit for a moment of silence. I am not sure who set this memorial up, but it has been placed on Info Island at 94, 117, 33 (an education owned island).
I suspect there will be many visitors to this virtual memorial in the coming days. I will post another picture in a few days of this site. Please keep those who were affected by this tragedy in your hearts and prayers.
Virginia Tech Memorial tonight at 11:30pm PDT
