April 16, 2008
Editor's Note:

On the anniversary of the massacre at Virginia Tech, we want to both remember the victims and thank the law enforcement officers and other first responders who stepped into the nightmare to help those in need.

Amid the armchair quarterbacking that often follows an incident like this, we know one thing for sure: Every one of you is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to keep others safe. You make up the thin blue line between good and evil and for that, we're thankful and proud.

Be sure to read Street Survival Seminar Instructor Dave Smith’s thoughts on the anniversary.

— Scott Buhrmaster, Managing Editor
