Remember and Reflect

Two years ago a student opened fire on students at Virginia Tech.  I remember those weeks following that shooting, my heart went out to the friends and families of those who died.  I also thought of students who had to find some way of making a normal life for themselves in a place where they'd experienced trauma, pain and fear.  These are two drawings that I created at that time, one was published in place of the editorial cartoon in our local paper.  It is difficult to understand what could have happened in the heart of a man that he'd be willing to cause this kind of pain.  Very sad indeed.  My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones and a sense of peace on that day two years ago.  I'm sure there are days when it feels like only yesterday.
