Virginia Tech Student Government Asks Reporters to Leave Campus
In a move destined to elicit applause from Americans on both sides of the aisle, the student government of Virginia Tech has formally asked all members of the media to be off their campus by Monday.
As reported at the website of WJLA, Washington, D.C.’s ABC affiliate:
A spokeswoman for the student government says the campus appreciates the reporting on the story, but that students are ready to move forward.
Liz Hart says "The best way to know how to do that is get the campus back to normal."
The article continued:
She says students need to be able to get back to class and back into a "normal routine as much as possible" without any reminders of what a "difficult road" it will be.
In her words ... "We already know it."
Let’s hope the media honor this request, and allow these students and faculty members to begin putting the pieces of their lives back together.
