四月的風殘忍的在星期一吹拂著布萊克斯堡
對一早撤離悲傷的布萊克斯堡的直昇機而言太強烈
對那晚在布萊克斯堡閃爍的熠熠燭光而言太強烈

學生們難過的在自己的宿舍裡守夜
威嚴且不規則伸展的的維吉尼亞理工學院校園被弄得破碎零散
繫在樹上的黃色警戒線猶如一陣狂風掃過樹幹而打結
像是為那些回不來的生命感到悲慟

當地的人說
風把天使帶來了
讓天使帶這些孩子們回家

(The winds were April cruel in Blacksburg on Monday: too strong for helicopters to evacuate the most badly wounded that morning, too strong for candles that night. The vigils would have to wait; the students grieved in the privacy of their dorms. The stately, sprawling campus of Virginia Tech was littered with broken branches; yellow police tape ribboned through a tree as if the gusts had tied it there, mourning those who would not be coming back. The locals said the winds rose to carry the angels down so they could take the children home.)
By NANCY GIBBS <Darkness Falls>, From the TIME magazine(翻譯錯誤請不吝指正)



今天在書店的雜誌區瀏覽了一下,看到這期《時代雜誌》封面,好奇拿起翻閱。前陣子震驚全世界的維吉尼亞理工學院大屠殺,又再度引起美國槍枝管理的討論,我大略翻閱,一張張照片悲慟感傷,震得我全身發麻。

意外的在時代雜誌網站上連結到維吉尼亞理工學院網站,裡頭有一個這件悲劇的專題網頁,大家可以寫給受難家屬的弔唁信寄到:
