No Sense

I have very few words to say about the Virginia Tech tragedy. My heart aches for the victims. My prayers are with the families and the community. But what can one say?

You can blame guns. You can blame a culture that glorifies violence. You can blame the university. You can blame the shooter.

You can blame. And blame. But you will not find understanding. Or justice. These things, as acutely horrifying as they are, as much as the scream out for comprehension—are senseless. The causes too deep and tangled to unravel. The motivations too dark to illuminate.

This tragedy was senseless. And that makes it all the worse.

God be with Virginia Tech.
