We will Prevail.....

When Nick and I visited Tech last weekend we walked over to the April 16th Memorial in front of Burruss Hall. We had been there before- when the Memorial was dedicated in August 2007, when we moved Matt into his apartment in January 2008, and last May for Matt's graduation.

Each of the 32 Hokie memorial stones had a daffodil laid beside it.

On this the 2nd anniversary, I read my entry for April 16, 2008 and the memories came flooding back.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the students and faculty who lost their lives that day and to all the students , faculty and staff of VT.

Nikki Giovanni said:
We will continue to invent the future
Through all our blood and tears
Through all this sadness
We are the HOKIES
We will prevail!
We will prevail!
We will prevail!

And they have prevailed......

Hokie Mom,
