Virginia Tech Massacre - Matt La Porte


Matt La Porte
By Nelson Swaim

I was on top of the world, everything to live for.

I was a sophomore at Virginia Tech,

And would have become an officer in the Air Force

But all of that was halted in an instant

When I tried to tackle him,

All that I had done, and all that I recovered from,

Are all just shattered memories now.
