CNN.com Pays Tribute to Virginia Tech Victims with Online Memorial

CNN Pressroom - CNN.com has created an online memorial which honors the 32 victims of last week’s tragedy at Virginia Tech. The tribute, located at www.CNN.com/victims, also features profiles, photos and video of the individuals as well as thoughts and memories from family and friends.

"We recognize the need to enable our audience to learn who these men and women were, as well as to reveal how profound our shared loss truly is," said Mitch Gelman, senior vice president and executive producer at CNN.com. "By providing a place for friends, family and colleagues to share their memories, we hope that we can contribute to the national healing and honor those who were felled in this mindless and horrible tragedy."
