I am a Virginia Tech student. I was affected by the tragedy in ways that I hope no one else experiences. In honor of the victims and as a way to express myself, I created this remembrance image in 3D Studio Max and Photoshop.
Beautiful work! Today, I wear the Hokie colors and remember how I dealt with learning about the shooting one year ago. I'm not a Hokie, normally, but today, I am. I hope you and others are doing well in overcoming your losses. I'm sure you are all strong and well indeed prevail.
I did a 3D image last year after the tragedy. I live in Harrisonburg VA (JMU's hometown) and while I'm not a student we were all deeply touched and shocked when this happened. I hope you are finding ways to heal and deal with being so closely affected.
I'm not going to lie... it's been the hardest year of my life. It's something that sticks in your mind all the time, whether you want it to or not, and whether you show it or not. And unfortunately... I expect it to affect the rest of my life.
