“We do not understand this tragedy. We know we did nothing to deserve it… no one deserves a tragedy.”

Candlelight Vigil on the Drillfield at Virginia Tech, 4/17/2007

“We are strong, and brave, and innocent, and unafraid. We are better than we think and not quite what we want to be. We are alive to the imaginations and the possibilities. We will continue to invent the future through our blood and tears and through all our sadness.

We are the Hokies.

We will prevail.

We will prevail.

We will prevail.

We are Virginia Tech.”

– Nikki Giovanni, 4/17/2007
