Hokie day Worldwide ….., GottaBeMobile news suspended for today in honor.

To all our GBM readers,

This will be the last post you see on GottaBeMobile.com today, in honor of the Hokie Nation.


It has been a sad week for those families, friends, staff and so many others at Virginia Tech.  My niece, Erin Kirks, is a student at the university, so I lived it through her emails a bit. We all really need to stop a moment and reflect upon the event, and offer up our wishes and prayers.  Those who were there lost something on that day.  Those of us who experienced it from afar have each lost something as well.  Every time an event like this happens, something I can only describe as a bit of our innocence slips away, stolen by those who wish us harm.  By stopping for the day to reflect, I honestly believe we can claim back some of that innocence as we turn our hearts inward, and pray for those most directly affected.  There are more difficult days to come, so let’s all not isolate our caring to just this one day.

Our thoughts, our prayers, and our best wishes to every one in the Hokie Nation as they move forward with pride and confidence.
