But we have moved on

The community is stronger now and better prepared. Students still flock from all over the country to get a world-class education at Virginia Tech. We don't let an isolated incident define our school and culture

The way we responded to that incident made me proud to be a Virginia Tech student and alumnus

We are a strong community

People do not understand that Blacksburg and Virginia Tech is a great area

They just believe what they see on the news

I understand that this situation is terrible, but there was a really important point brought up. Corporations, by default, are amoral. Their only objective is to make money. Take this fact as you wish, but there is nothing you can do to regulate an inherently amoral entity.
The only solution to this problem is to make health insurance independant of one's employement. Corporations should not have an incentive to fire someone due to external circumstances (because they will no matter what, even if you try to regulate it, they will do it), nor should your family's health be tied to one's status of employement.
A lot of people in this thread are like "**** wells fargo" and "**** corporations" and stuff like this, but the fact is that all corporations have incentive to fire people for health reasons when you tie people's health to their employement

Maxim Lapierre (born March 29, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Drafted out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), he was selected 61st overall in 2003 by the Montreal Canadiens. He spent parts of his first three professional seasons with the Canadiens' minor league affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) before playing his first full NHL season in 2008–09. Lapierre spent five-and-a-half seasons in the Canadiens organization before being traded to the Anaheim Ducks in December 2010. Two months later, he was traded again to the Canucks and helped the team to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost to the Boston Bruins.

On this day...
March 10: Laetare Sunday (Western Christianity, 2013); Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom (2013)

1830 – The Royal Netherlands East Indies Army, the military force maintained by the Netherlands in its colony of the Dutch East Indies, was established by royal decree.
1876 – Alexander Graham Bell (pictured) made his first successful bi-directional telephone call, saying, "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you."
1959 – An anti-Chinese uprising erupted in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, as about 300,000 Tibetans surrounded the Potala Palace to prevent the 14th Dalai Lama from leaving or being removed by the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
1968 – Vietnam War/Laotian Civil War: North Vietnamese and Pathet Lao forces overwhelmed the American, Laotian, Thai, and Hmong defenders of Lima Site 85.
2006 – NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter attained orbit around Mars.

The attitude, not so much.

Did you know that John Blackadder, while a young officer in the Scottish Army, killed a fellow officer in a duel in 1691?
