Members of the Virginia Tech community form the phrase VT Thanks You as part of the Hokies Thank the World event in Blacksburg, Va., Saturday. The message is in response to the global outpouring of support for the university and community following the deadliest shooting in U.S. history April 16. At top center is Burruss Hall, the central administration building, and to the right is Norris Hall where gunman Seung-Hui Cho killed 30 of his 32 victims and then himself. A satellite image of the thank-you event will be distributed worldwide.
