It's hard to know what to write this morning. The only thing on anyone's mind over here is the shooting at Virginia Tech yesterday morning - the worst shooting in U.S. history. The magnitude and violence of this rampage is astounding, and also hard to understand.
So now we need to try to comprehend and tell the story as best we can, so that we can mourn the loss the families of those thirty-two students killed as a country. We have Matt and Meredith in Blacksburg speaking with witnesses to the shootings, survivors, and family members of victims. These mornings are the most challenging and most meaningful here, because it is imperative that as producers we keep our heads together while hearing some of the most heart-wrenching testimonials.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Virginia Tech community, and most especially the families of those who were killed.
