Today ... here at home, around the country, and around the world ... we are all Hokies. In memory of the 32 students and faculty killed in Monday's senseless tragedy at Virginia Tech, many will wear the school colors of maroon and orange. A moment of silence will be observed at 12:00 Noon Eastern Daylight Time.
