John Edwards: The Tragic Events
20 Apr 2007
an email from the Edwards
The Edwards Family



We are simply heartbroken by the deaths and injuries suffered at Virginia Tech. We know what an unspeakable, life-changing moment this is for these families and how, in this moment, it is hard to feel anything but overwhelming grief, much less the love and support around you. But the love and support is there. We pray that these families, these students, and the entire Virginia Tech community know that they are being embraced by a nation. There is a Methodist hymn that gave us solace in such a moment as this, and we repeat its final verse here, in hopes it will help these families, as it helped us:

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
In our doubt there is believing, in our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

Our dearest wish is that this day could start again, with the promise of these young people alive. Knowing that cannot be, our prayer is for God?s grace and whatever measure of peace can be reached on this terrible day.


John and Elizabeth Edwards

A Sad Day Indeed!
22 Apr 2007
Egos drive senseless people. The shootings at Virginia Tech was from a senseless ego. Many people have senseless egos.
I'd vote for John Edwards. If he'd vow to sever ties with the Council of Foreign Relations. (CFR)
Until the people of the United States know who the Council of Foreign Relations are? Everything else is trivial.
The murderers behind 911? CFR. Close to 1 million Iraqi's dead? CFR. 3,000 U.S. Troops dead? CFR. These people put the politicians in office. These people control ALL media.
Do your homework.
And John? Would you arrest these traitors?

...and many people make senseless comments. The CFR is only the tip of the iceberg. It doesn't "control" everything, it reflects the views of a complex web of tightly-held, jealously-guarded private and public power. Personally, I'd be even more pleased if Edward's would cut his ties to AIPAC.
