'Shouldn't Happen Here'

Blogger and Virginia Tech grad student silvertongue1 used her livejournal blog to let her family and friends know she was safe:

"Now I'm in my dorm, which is under lockdown (along with the rest of campus). I won't be teaching class today, but this is another one of those times where I'm grateful to have an Au Bon Pain in my lobby. I've got food. Things are scary outside. We were told to stay away from windows. I can hear the severe weather alert loudspeakers outside being used to tell us to stay indoors, and there are sirens. I'm listening to CNN, and find it so hard to believe this, just a few days after a bomb threat closed 3 buildings. I know the places they're showing on TV. It's just surreal. Blacksburg is 'the country.' Things like this just shouldn't happen here."
