Below are some thoughts about a trip made to Virginia Tech the weekend of April 20th, with a good friend, Miriam. We went to visit another friend, Marian, who is a professor there; and to deliver homemade cookies from several people/groups here in the Bronx. Many of us here in New York City wanted to ‘do something’ for the students and others at Virginia Tech, but we weren’t quite sure what to do. I then saw a CNN report about an interfaith meeting of pastors and preachers in Blacksburg, wherein the faith community decided they would ask townspeople to invite students for a home-cooked meal. Since we couldn’t exactly do that from New York, homemade cookies seemed the next best thing.
The thoughts below were originally a ‘thank you’ of sorts to all the bakers.
And the references to ‘Bill’ are of course, about my brother, killed on 9-11.
