Today is Hokie Hope Day, where we are all Hokies. Today we honor all Hokies. Today we recognize the wonderful people who reached out and helped their fellow students. I heard that at this year's commencement Virginia Tech will award degrees to all the students who lost their lives. We recognize the sadness that those at Virgina Tech, those in the surrounding areas, those in South Korea, everyone who is a parent, and a sibling, feels.
An editorial on NPR today talked about how a world where we count the bad and take the good for granted is a hopeful one, since it indicates that we think the bad is easier to count.
