Emotions spill over

Posted: Wednesday, April 18 at 11:13 am ET by Jay Blackman, NBC News producer

Emotions are spilling over at Virginia Tech.

Walking around the campus, examples are everywhere: Many students still seem to be in shocked disbelief, tears streaming down their faces.

Poignant notes, such as “God bless Virginia Tech,” are scrawled on numerous makeshift memorials -- including big pieces of plywood, painted white and written on with Sharpie pens.

Clearly anxious parents can be seen walking hand in hand with their children, probably the first time in ages that the kids have been willing to be seen holding hands with their moms in public. 

Rarely do you see students walking alone; they always seem to be with friends, trying to make sense of it together.
