Let Us Remember

Plenty of time to blog on poker later. Today, as I sit here in my office in my Virginia Tech golf shirt, over the top of my Hokies United T-shirt, thinking about my Good Doctor Mondo participating in her lie-in against gun violence at noon, it's awfully hard not to dwell on a year ago today.

We will continue to invent the future through our blood and tears and through all our sadness.... We will prevail....

-- Nikki Giovanni, University Distinguished Professor, poet, activist

The Good Doctor Hokie Mondo and I will be attending a memorial service this evening. And, really, all we can ask for is that no school ever have to bear such tragedy.

My thoughts are with you on this tough day. No university should ever have to go through that.
