This is a good idea. It saddens me that we have to actually have a contingency plan for this event.

I saw some of the manifesto stuff on msnbc last night. I read the article, but felt I didn't want to see the video. It just didn't seem right.

I watched news coverage on CNN for the first time last night as well. They were playing the manifesto stuff of course. I turned off the TV.

I'm in the photo too, but you have to really look to find me.

Hi everyone. First, I really want to thank Interference, and all who've posted in this thread and the other. This has been a place for me to express myself, vent, and even seek refuge. Your continued comments of hope, love, and support really do warm my heart.

I just wanted to tell you all that I'm going to a group counseling session for graduate students today. They will be addressing such things as taking care of ourselves, and helping our students cope. As well as moving on. Which, I'm actually curious about, because I was supposed to defend, so I may not get to graduate. But we'll see.

Thanks again everyone.

The University of Miami did a vigil the other night and they quickly made a whole bunch of shirts with this logo on it:



Here's some vigil photos: http://www6.miami.edu/communications...nds/vigil.html

I understand that my school did it too, but I go to an adjacent campus and missed the whole thing.
We have a facebook group too, though we aren't as organized as UM:

We were supposed to wear maroon today. I didn't know. I have plenty of maroon, b/c my elementary school colors and our college's colors are maroon and gold.

I'm wearing khaki and turquoise

I hope that's not an actual poster plastered around campus for the simple reason that "Hokies" is misspelled!

I hope everyone that has been affected by this tragedy gets the love and support they need.

Oh, this is what I missed:



Quote:
The Virginia Tech Alumni Association, and the state's governor, are asking Americans to show support for the shooting victims and their families by wearing the school's colors on "Orange and Maroon Effect" day tomorrow (Friday, April 20). Since maroon is one of Calvin's school colors this request seemed like a very appropriate way for people at Calvin to show support. So please come to Calvin tomorrow wearing something maroon as together we stand in prayer and solidarity with our colleagues at Virginia Tech. Orange and Maroon Effect day began a few years ago as a way for students, alumni and fans to show school spirit at sporting events. The idea to designate tomorrow as such a day began as an e-mail circulating that picked up steam and has since spread to colleges, universities and more across the nation.
