Eh-hum # 146

The shooting incident at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University was indeed gruesome to say the least. It is only proper that the promising students and esteemed professors who have died be remembered for the lives they have lived outside and inside the University campus. They deserve no less.

However, I hope that this incident will not result in hatred towards South Koreans, who also are shocked to realize that one of their own have unleased this monstrosity. We condemn the senseless killings. Nonetheless, the gunman was also a victim, and his parents and relatives will have to bear the feeling of guilt and remorse for his actions whenever they remember him. Nobody wanted this to happen.

Prayers go to all the families and friends, and I do mean all.
