BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) - The Virginia Tech community is remembering the victims and survivors of the April 16 shootings in a unique way.

Each year, there is a display in the Newman Library for several days leading up to the anniversary and every year there is a different theme.

This year's theme is Words of Comfort. The artifacts chosen were sent in from well-wishers all over the world. There is at least one thing from every continent.

There are more than 89,000 items stored in the library's April 16th archive.

Words of Comfort will be open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
