Nikki Giovanni: We ARE Virgina Tech

"No one deserves a tragedy."

As it turns out, it was professor and poet Nikki Giovanni who taught the troubled Va Tech student in her class but had him removed. My thoughts are with her, Lucinda Roy, the campus community, and all who tried to do something but couldn't do enough.

Here are Giovanni's closing remarks from the April 17 address to the VA Tech Campus.

Go Hokies, and God bless.
