Prayers for Virginia Tech Student Kristina Heeger
Described by The Washington Post as "an amazing, beautiful girl," Virginia Tech student Kristina Heeger was among those injured in the shooting rampage Monday on the southwestern Virginia campus in Blacksburg. Space.com reports that Kristina is the step-daughter of Space Adventures CEO Eric Anderson of Vienna, Va.
We can only lend prayers and well-wishes to Kristina for a complete and speedy recovery now and in the days ahead. The grief and distress of the Anderson family is shared by every Hokie parent today and by those in the NewSpace industry.
