Message to the Media: Leave the Hokies Alone

Now that classes are back in session after the tragic events at Virgina Tech, I would like to beg the media to please leave the campus and let the students deal with what has happened as a community. They are heading back to classes and need the time away from the glare of the media in order to focus on their studies and allow time for the grieving process.

It would also be nice if the media resisted giving anymore attention to the killer of this murderous rampage. By airing his video time and time again, the media is giving him the attention that he so craved. It would be better for the media to focus on the lives of the victims and not the killer.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Hokies, their families and friends. Peace.
