Christesen speaks out about Virginia Tech tragedy

The tragic events at Virginia Tech have truly seared our hearts and mindsat PSI and across campus here at the National Headquarters of Alpha Beta Gamma.

Such savage, savage brutality has no place in law-abiding society and among civilized people everywhere, no matter the country.

As President Bush stated, when anyone violates the santuary of a college campus, every college campus is affected.

Our prayers go to all who are in any way hurting and our profound sorrow, with yours, is ever with us. Chapters are holding a vigil for all victims and their families and friends.

May God keep all of us comforted and give us supernatural strength and power to cope, as only He can do that.

--Dr. John D. Christesen
