I’m hitting refresh every few minutes on my computer this morning to keep track of what’s going on at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. An inmate who was taken to the hospital escaped and has already killed two people. He’s running loose on the Virginia Tech Campus this morning. It’s the first day of classes, so I’m sure it’s mass confusion. One of the guys I work with has a daughter at Tech (she was in my youth ministry as well) and she called this morning and told how she was going to class at Squires and was turned away by the police. They had their weapons drawn and were looking for the suspect. The campus is in a lockdown. Scary stuff. We live in a crazy world. It hits home when it’s your college and you have a ton on former students there. Here is the news story that is being updated every few minutes.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
