This is something that was recently posted by Virginia Tech, if the picture doesn't come thru, it is Hoke Hope. You may be able to access the same info via www.vt.edu, Hokie Hope originally started to encourage students to show their Hokie pride before football games. VT is encouraging everyone, everywhere to wear orange and maroon on Friday in a show of support for all those affected by this tragedy.

My husbands friends were in the building, 2 of his professors were killed, one shot. Not we find out that one of the professors killed was the father of one of our grad students.

I just made a ribbon for my husband to wear on the back of his name tag at work. I used DMC floss in the colors 498 and 946, braided them together, tied the ends, and trimmed them neatly.
