Today, classes are canceled at Virginia Tech. The campus is remembering the students and teachers who died when one disturbed classmate armed himself and stormed the campus. More than 3,000 have already completed the 3.2 mile "Run for Remembrance," and right about now, students, teachers, administrators, and others are gathering for a picnic and afternoon of ceremonies and reflection. If you're so inclined, take a moment to just soak in the photo above and send some mental goodwill to Blacksburg.
