To the fullest extent, I extend my heart and my deepest prayers to the victims, the families and the Virginia Tech community. Amid such an unfortunate and unforeseen tragedy such as the tragic events that took place on April 16, 2007, you all have displayed the profound courage and support that is greatly needed to move forward as we remember and respect each victim as a human being who was unquestionably entitled to the right to breathe.
There’s no denying that we have lost yet another battle to violence and terror and we can’t turn back the hands of time, but we can stand strong and continue to fight as we have and win this ongoing war against allowing events such as these, to overrule our nation with fear.
At the defense of our nation’s officials, I proclaim that we could have all the plans in the world but we’ll never be prepared enough when it happens. We can’t point fingers at elected officials and authority figures or ourselves, each time events such as these happen. We wake up each day in a world overturned by violence, but we do not look forward to events such as the massacre at Virginia Tech or the attacks on September 11, 2001. If man made it, then man can destroy it. The only way to stop such violence is by not allowing such violence to overtake our nation in anyway whatsoever. The media has and continues to play a great role in bringing our nation together at such a tragic time, yet it is perceived as a point of weakness and tells anyone with any harmful intentions where to hit us again.
As a young performer who has realized that everything that I say and do influences someone somewhere, I am dedicated to having a positive influence on youth. So I speak out in an effort to influence other youth to voice their views and concerns. I personally could not retain my personal feelings and views about the tragic events at Virginia Tech. I profoundly encourage that each youngster dedicates thirty-three minutes of his or her life to the victims and their families. Each day we awake ignoring the question marks over our heads and its time that we take life seriously and realize that in our nation, each of us on any day of the week at any school on any street could’ve felled victim of such a tragic event.
With the deepest regards,
Larry “LaPret” Pretlow II
