The worst shooting in US history occured today in my state at Virginia Tech with 33 dead and 28 wounded. I do not know what more to say.

Lamentations To Virginia Tech

An eagle flew and looked below,
what he saw grieved him so.
There lying in blood
were those that knew not why.
They were the ones that had to die.
So it was that the great eagle
fell in lamentations to the slain.
And as he sat upon the high granite wall,
a single tear from his eye did fall.
