I have chosen not to write about the horror that took place on Monday at VT. It’s been over done and even though I don’t personally know anyone who was either killed or injured, it hurts. I can’t explain it. You will have to trust me on this one.

Instead, I want to pass this along to you all. If it means something to you please participate if not, that’s okay too.

Hokie Hope: Orange and Maroon Effect - Friday, April 20th 2007
Virginia Tech family members across the country have united to declare this Friday, April 20, an "Orange and Maroon Effect" day to honor those killed in the tragic events on campus Monday and to to show support for VT students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and friends.

We invite everyone across the country to be part of the Virginia Tech family this Friday and wear orange and maroon to support the families of those who were lost and support the school and community we all love so much.

Find all your loved ones, family, friends, whatever it takes and give them all a huge hug. We all need it.

Dave and CEO: It is all so very sad. OK City Anniversary is today.

It was comforting to see how many people did wear the colors today. Very humbling.
