One Year

Today is the one year mark of the shootings at Virginia Tech. There was a candlelight vigil and ceremony in the Amphitheater tonight, with an acknowledgment of those lost, and a memorial performance by On The Rocks.

One of the speakers, Geoff Palachuk, left us with this inspirational Sanskrit Proverb:

“Look well to this day, for it is life, the very life of life. In it lies all the realities and verities of existence: the bliss of growth, the glory of action, splendor of beauty. For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day, for it and it alone is life! Such is the salutation of the dawn.”
