Nothing will ever be more true of the Hokie family I hold near and dear to my heart. 5 years later, though the ache of loss never truly leaves those who were present and there are many of us to set foot on Tech’s campus afterward, today, we all feel as one. Let the lives lost never leave our hearts. May their memory remind us to embody Ut Prosim. Hokie love grows every day and will always strengthen those in need.
We are Virginia Tech.
We will prevail.
Live for 32.
Below is a retelling of one Hokie’s experience on April 16,2007.
