Hokies Thank The World

I didn't know where to post this, but all the VT tragedy related threads were here in FYM, so I just put it in here.

Over the past 7 months we in the Virginia Tech community have received SO MUCH support from our friends worldwide. We decided to pay tribute to those who reached out to us this past weekend. Thousands of us gathered on the drillfield to show our thanks.

Quote:
The "Hokies Thank the World" event brought together thousands of Hokies on the Virginia Tech Drillfield to spell out a message of thanks to the world in recognition of the global outpouring of support and love for the Virginia Tech community following the events of April 16. The message of thanks was recorded by ground, aerial, and satellite imagery and will be shared with the world for free through www.HokiesThankTheWorld.org. The event took place on November 17, 2007 beginning at 10:35am and ending at approximately 11:12am on the Virginia Tech Drillfield in Blacksburg, Virginia.


I wanted to put this here because SO MANY of you have done so much. And since this was a global message, I wanted to ensure the interference community knew about it, because you certainly deserve the appreciation. So again, thanks for everything. You all rock my world.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, that's me.

Cool pictures! Very nice idea.

I'm glad that you and everyone else had so many people around to help you through this whole thing . And I think it's safe to say we'll always continue to be there for you.

Angela

That's no problem at all, Mia, and I would like to return the "Thank You" for your support.

Walk On!
