Tech dead begin to be named

Virginia Tech black ribbonCNN has the first few names of the Virginia Tech dead listed.

I think the picture of Ryan Clark may be the hardest on me: I’m used to seeing the band in such high spirits at football games — even when we were on NCAA suspension much of my time at Tech, and had suffered a major drain of good players and were consistently losing — that it’s hard to reconcile those memories with him being gunned down for the crime of being a good resident advisor.

Not among the dead are anyone from my fraternity, which sent out an e-mail reassuring everyone:

To All Friends, Family, and Members of Pi Kappa Alpha,

As you may or not be aware, there were tragic events that took place today on the Virginia Tech Campus. We have confirmed that no members of our chapter have been injured or deceased. However, this tragedy will undoubtedly have a great effect on us and the entire Virginia Tech Community. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this tragedy.

We have received numerous phone calls and e-mails expressing sympathies for all of us here at Virginia Tech. It means so much to have your support during this tragedy. We are currently working with the campus and community to support them in any way we can.

In the bonds of Phi Phi Kappa Alpha,

Tyler Greene
SMC Epsilon Chapter
