Forgotten Victims of VT

As anyone with a brain and any connection to reality knows. Monday was a black day for Virginia Tech. A student armed with 2 pistols went on a rampage killing 32 people, wounding about 15 more and finally killing himself. You can read about him and his victims all over the web but or is a good place to start.

But what about the family of Cho Seung-Hui? Is is unreasonable to pray for his family as well? After all they have not only lost a member of their family but he was also responsible for the deaths of 32 people and he tried to kill another 15 or so. That is bad news following bad news. Imagine the shame and embarrassment that family feels because of what their son did. If the country of S. Korea feels ashamed then his family must really be embarrassed. Their only saving grace is that he was an adult and not a minor when he committed this act of evil.

His family is just as much a victim as the families that lost loved ones. Keep them in your prayers as well.
