Friday, April 20, 2007 has been declared a Statewide Day of Mourning here in Virginia by Governor Tim Kaine.
And Virginia Tech family members have also declared Friday an
Orange and Maroon Effect day, to "honor those killed during the shootings on Monday and to show support for Virginia Tech students, faculty , administrators, staff, alumni and friends."
(The "Orange and Maroon Effect" was born several years ago as in invitation to Tech fans to wear orange and maroon to Virginia Tech athletic events.)
Which is why I have changed my journal colors, just for today.
Please consider clicking the link on my sidebar, to read about the lives of each of the victims of the shootings.
We continue to hold all those affected by this tragedy in our prayers.
AOL Journals Editor Joe of Magic Smoke blog has a post here
with some good links.
I know I have been blogging almost exclusively about the Virginia Tech massacre, and I do have other topics I want to post about. I will return to blogging about those another day, but not today.
Today, " We are all Hokies."
