In Remembrance

To all our my Readers,

Given the amount of my readers that live in the United States I have decided to also remember those affected by the Virginia Tech incident. Although I am in Australia I now am more affiliated than ever with the USA since joining GottaBeMobile. My heart and condolences goes out to those affected.

Here are some words from GottaBeMobile website:

This will be the last post you see on today, in honor of the Hokie Nation.
It has been a sad week for those families, friends, staff and so many others at Virginia Tech. My niece, Erin Kirks, is a student at the university, so I lived it through her emails a bit. We all really need to stop a moment and reflect upon the event, and offer up our wishes and prayers. Those who were there lost something on that day. Those of us who experienced it from afar have each lost something as well. Every time an event like this happens, something I can only describe as a bit of our innocence slips away, stolen by those who wish us harm. By stopping for the day to reflect, I honestly believe we can claim back some of that innocence as we turn our hearts inward, and pray for those most directly affected. There are more difficult days to come, so let's all not isolate our caring to just this one day.

Our thoughts, our prayers, and our best wishes to every one in the Hokie Nation as they move forward with pride and confidence.
