BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine says the day that 32 people were killed at a mass shooting at Virginia Tech remains the worst day of his life.

Kaine delivered his remarks at a service to honor the victims of the shooting ten years ago today.

Kaine said April 16, 2007 remains “the worst day of my life.” He had been governor for a year and a half when the shooting occurred.

Kaine praised the bravery of those who helped students that day, and the Virginia Tech community for its strength and resilience, ten years later.

Kaine said, “I’m proud of this community, of the resilience of this community.”
