Virginia Tech students return to classes this morning

Virginia Tech students somberly returned to campus Monday, pausing for a moment of silence to remember the classmates murdered a week ago in a gunman's rampage. Students and faculty gathered at about 7:10 a.m. near the residence hall where the first victims, Ryan Clark and Emily Hilscher, were killed. They also gathered on the main campus lawn and held several impromptu memorials as the smell of scented candles filled the morning air.
