Everyone should stop for a moment to reflect on the lives both lost and impacted by this tragedy. My family was one affected.

It's a powerful thing when you look at American history and see the names of people who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to have the freedoms we so often take for granted.

This memorial is located in front of Burruss Hall and is dedicated to those who lost their lives in the horrific tragedy. Good to see for all those touched by this event.

If you are going to be in Blacksburg, you should stop by and see this. It's a picturesque setting and a lovely memorial to 32 needles, tragic deaths. Also a reminder of the strong community of Virginia Tech. It's perfectly simple and moving.
