Thanks for this link, Yvonne. It was very well written and informative. As I learn more about this terrible incident and the strength and courage of the people there at the TVUU congregation, I am more and more impressed and actually filled with hope for the future! These kinds of things have a way of drawing us together, those of us of like-minds, and perhaps it will also help others to see what standing up for your beliefs really means...
Take care, dear friend...

Thanks. I'm just glad I live in a country where guns are not easily available and we don't consider it a right to carry one.

How many more incidents like this will it take for America to come to its senses and repeal the second amendment?

Yes, I am deeply impressed by the courage of the TVUU congregation, and encouraged by the way everyone has rallied round.

Oh, I agree, Yvonne... they like to say here that guns don't kill people, people do, but if we didn't have the guns IN THE FIRST PLACE these tragic events would certainly not happen!
I can't see it ever changing here, unfortunately...

Well in the UK we still get stabbings and the occasional shooting, but nothing on the scale of Virginia Tech.
