We Are. . . Virginia Tech

Filed in by Rackspace Blogger | April 18, 2007 6:52 pm

As many of you know, we are located in the heart of Blacksburg inside the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center[1]. We are all deeply saddened by the events that took place on our campus on Monday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family and friends who were in any way affected by these horrific events.
All of our employees are okay, although almost everyone knows at least someone who was directly affected, including a coworker’s husband who was shot in the head while sitting in class. Luckily, he is out of the hospital and back home with his family.
Below are blog posts from Webmailers who have expressed their thoughts on this tragedy. The first post is a recount of the horror in Norris Hall by the husband of our coworker who was shot.
