Freaking out commences in 3... 2... 1.

Just a quick post...

There has been another shooting at Virginia Tech.  My cousin was in the process of getting his Bachelor's degree there when the first one occurred, and just a few months ago, he got his Doctoral degree from VT.

He was offered a faculty position for the spring.  I don't know if he's accepted it, nor do I know if he's on campus today (as he lives quite close).  But if you could keep him in your positive thoughts, I'd really appreciate it.

I'll let you all know as soon as I hear from him.


Update:  He was working in a different city today, so he wasn't near campus.  Panic attack averted.


  1. Glad your cousin is alright, I hate scares like that.

  2. I live about an hour from there, and I swear about half of my graduating class from high school goes there. It was crazy seeing everyone's posts when that was going down. And crazy that lightning struck the same place twice.. I feel terribly for the student body. And I'm glad your cousin is ok!
