What Can One Say?

What's happened down at Virginia Tech today is truly tragic, and conjures up the still-fresh pain Canadians felt when the Dawson tragedy occurred. 21 people murdered, and we're still yet to know the reason(s) why and the motivations of the killer who did this.

We know the motivations of those who engineered the Holocaust, the victims of which we remember today. Earlier, in the public square on Spring Garden Road, there was a person reading off the names and a brief history of those who were killed in horrible camps at places such as Treblinka, Auschwitz, and Dachau.

This is a very sad day for humanity.

Update: the number is now actually 31 dead. Worse and worse.
