"Orange and Maroon Effect" this Friday

The VT tragedy that took place on Monday is not a thing I am currently capable of putting words to, to give definition or to express solace. What must carry us all through this time is mutual love and respect, be it visible to many or as silent as prayer.

This Friday, April 20th, has been declared "a statewide day of mourning for the victims of Monday’s tragedy at Virginia Tech."
On Friday, Governor Kaine will participate in an interfaith prayer service in Monroe Park on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. He has encouraged other communities in Virginia and across the nation to hold their own simultaneous ceremonies and participate in prayer services, beginning with the ringing of bells at noon, eastern daylight savings time.

That day is also being declared an "Orange and Maroon Effect" day:

Wear orange and maroon on Friday.
