Late last summer, Jeanne Jackson – a resident of the bucolic Shenadoah Valley, close by Virginia Tech – noticed something interesting about her community. It’s no longer all-white, all southern. “You can’t help but notice the change in the population mix that has taken place over the last year,” she wrote. “Hence the battle lines are subtly being drawn.”

That post, “Signs of Conscience,” is worth visiting again today in the shadow of the Virginia Tech shootings. Much about rural Virginia – and the schools and other institutions that once served the state’s “farm boys” – has changed and much will be written about those changes in the days and weeks to come. So we point you to her earlier reflections.
