The Buffalo News: Niagara County:
NIAGARA FALLS â€” The American and Horseshoe Falls will be illuminated in the colors of Virginia Tech Sunday night in honor of the 32 victims of Mondayâ€™s massacre.
The water will flow maroon and orange between 8:30 p.m. and midnight, lit by a phalanx of high powered lights on the Canadian side of the Niagara River. Prior to the lighting of the falls, a memorial prayer service will be held at 8 p.m. in Statue of Liberty Park, near the American entrance to the Rainbow Bridge.
The orange and maroon are going to flow to the great oceans just like the fallen students and professors.
I have to say in a minortarian tone, that there were at least 33 victims lives that ended in death, and we don’t know how many thousands of lives were shortened through grief, worry, and this horrible transformation of their lives, that is a greater number than those in the Hokie Nation, that is everyone who now worries a little deeper about their loved ones because of this event.
