Orange and Maroon Effect Day

I never really know what to think about these types of memorials, but this one certainly makes sense. Today is an Orange and Maroon Effect Day:
"VT family members across the country have united to declare this Friday April 20th, an "Orange and Maroon Effect" day to honor those killed in the tragic events on campus Monday, and to show support for VT students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and friends.”

"Orange and Maroon Effect" was born several years ago as an invitation to Tech Fans to wear orange and maroon to VT athletic events. We invite everyone from all over the country to be a part of the VT family this Friday. To wear orange and maroon to
support the families of those who were lost, and to support the school and community we all love so much."
I got an email from Brian at MGoBlog with an idea to change the color scheme of one's blog to show support for Virginia Tech. It seemed like an easy enough decision, and perhaps it will help show solidarity in a time of great pain, fear and uncertainty.
