All week long I've "kept my distance" from Virginia Tech though geographically it's not far. About an hour from Lynchburg. In my disgust for the media, I've watched as little as possible. Broadcasting the gunman's face 24/7 is not helping anyone. Obviously the guy was sick, but he's gone, along with the rest of the victims.
My sturdy wall is up. I don't know any of those people. How is me getting all wigged out about it going to help? Sure, I'll offer up a prayer or two for the families (including the shooter's), but that's about it. Move along.
But in the car this morning, I heard that Penn State students are asking for everyone to wear Virginia Tech colors to their game this weekend. Instead of looking out into the usual sea of Nittany blue and white, they want the stands full of orange and blue.
Why am I crying?
I don't even like sports.
