Overview

A gripping, emotional account of the worst school shooting in United States history, told by those who lived through it



Monday, April 16, 2007 started like any other Monday at Virginia Tech, with professors and students preparing for another busy week of classes. However, word quickly circulated of a shooting in the dorms - and the gunman was still loose. The campus went into lockdown, and as the gruesome events unfolded in Norris Hall, a group of journalism students trapped in a nearby building transmitted stories and updates to the student-run website, PlanetBlacksburg.com.



Now, these students, together with their journalism instructor and members of the Virginia Tech community, have documented the events of that day. April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers gives a voice to the students, faculty, and staff who lived through the shooting, and serves as a memorial for the 32 victims. The book also describes the onslaught of media coverage that immediately followed, and reveals the remarkable resilience of the students of Virginia Tech throughout the entire ordeal.

    Good read

    This was my "rainy day" read. Because of the way it was organized, it took me a little bit longer to get through it than it does with most other books. Still, this is a great way to commemorate the VT shooting, and the lives lost in it.

    MUST READ

    Whether you are a Hokie or not, this book lets you be there the day of the incident and understand what victims went through and get a sense of what it was like in Norris Hall during and after the event. To read all the personal stories was so touching. This book was put together so well, I am proud to call myself a Hokie!

    this was so emotional it was aching my heart

    this book speaks truth.it tells the readers how students reacted and how they live with the horror from apirl 16th.i was impressed at how open they was to tell this story..as a resident of Virginia i never that something like this could have happened here.i only thing i didn't like about reading was how the media basically raped Virginia Tech and the students who went there.my heart goes out to the families of these victims.i believe everyone needs to read this book.it lets you in on how gun control is needed.
