Virginia Governor Speaks

A statement from Gov. Tim Kaine:

“It is difficult to comprehend senseless violence on this scale.
“Our prayers are with the families and friends of these victims, and members of the extended Virginia Tech community.
“The state is working closely with Tech officials, local law enforcement, and the community health system to provide whatever additional resources and support may be needed.
“My staff has made arrangements for me to leave Tokyo today, where I was set to begin a two-week Asian trade mission, so that I can return to the Commonwealth on Tuesday.
“I urge Virginians to keep these victims and their families in their thoughts and prayers.”
