I would like to send my condolences to all families and Henry Lee's family. Even though I don't know any of the victims, I feel a sense of loss. I can't believe that someone would take away other people's right to live. As part of an Asian community (and no, I'm not Korean), I can't help but feel horrible about this tragedy.

Let's pray for all victims and their families. May everyone find peace and happiness.

A great student, a sad story.

How tragic this young man had accomplished what he did and his life was cut off by some monster. Rest in peace, Henry Lee. Your story here is inspiring. - The Netherlands

Every fallen person in this tragic incident is now an angel in heaven, this I believe. They will never die again,but live on forever as our guiding lamppost. We will all learn from their sacrifice to restore each campus as a safer and inspiring sactuary again to nurture young people to learn. They will become our future leaders for a society that has the potential to become a good society. Let's work together to make it happen.

Henry Lee is a Vietnamese though he immigrated to the States from China. It is such a great loss for us the world's citizens to have lost such a talent. Rest in peace Henh. May God be with you.

First, let me say all my prayers are with the families of loss ones. I wish I could bring them all back, but I know I can't. Look to each other for support. Think of the good times you shared. Pray.

by A.E. Housman, one of the great, sorrowful poems, lamenting the passing of promises before their times:


The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.

To-day, the road all runners come,
Shoulder-high we bring you home,
And set you at your threshold down,
Townsman of a stiller town.

Smart lad, to slip betimes away
From fields where glory does not stay,
And early though the laurel grows
It withers quicker than the rose.

Eyes the shady night has shut
Cannot see the record cut,
And silence sounds no worse than cheers
After earth has stopped the ears:

Now you will not swell the rout
Of lads that wore their honours out,
Runners whom renown outran
And the name died before the man.

So set, before the echoes fade,
The fleet foot on the sill of shade,
And hold to the low lintel up
The still-defended challenge-cup.

And round that early-laurelled head
Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead,
And find unwithered on its curls
The garland briefer than a girl's.

My heart aches for Henry Lee and the other students who were so unexpectedly lost. Words cannot explain the sorrow I feel. I am a South Korean and this is such a deep shock to South Korean people. Please know what we are very sorry this tragedy happened and grieving with you all.

Rest in peace. You'll be missed.

How tragically hypocritical. Cho murdered a fellow student who was in the same type of situation he was, quite unlike the "rich and privileged" he hated.

Prayers to the families and friends of those lost in this tragedy.

everyone who knew the fallen students, family, friends, etc., need not grieve, you'll see them again shortly. You see, people, the powerful one, the one at the top, is coming for us all in just less than two years. This I most recently learned. I'm simply telling you what I've been told by a beautiful winged one. To all reading this, to prove this, keep an eye on all the major networks in the next few months. This is because some absolutely wonderful things will take place on this planet during this time. Keep watching as there will be several special bulletin reports that interrupt all the major network television broadcasts. There are and will be a lot of sad, sick, posts on these sights by many unjust humans looking for attention: this is not one of them.

To the Lee family:

Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are aching with you, but I know we will prevail from this senseless tragedy. Stay strong for your beloved son!

in His love and ours,
~The Chong family (your former neighbor)

To Henry's family and friends. I am so sorry for your loss. My daughter and Henry's cousin (SW) are friends and I know how devastated she is. Henry was a very special young man. Let the Nation see that while the blood of all Americans runs Red, White and Blue; during this time of mourning, their hearts beat the Hokie Fight song. Let the world witness and marvel at the strength of the families, alumni, and students of the Hokie Nation.. They continue to make me proud and show the world what our best and brightest have to offer. Today, we all stand, proudly wearing Maroon and Orange, as ONE NATION, UNDER GOD!

I taught Henh on Saturday mornings during Upward Bound (French). He was a joy to have in class and was always helpful and so intelligent. He will be truly blessed. My thoughts are prayers go out to the Ly family.
