A true story told to me by my dear friend, a WVU mom, about her grandson, also a rabid Mountaineer supporter:
A 13 year old middle schooler had been closely watching the news about Virginia Tech. The first time he met up with his grandmother after the shootings, he was noticeably concerned and thoughtful. After they agreed it was a terrible tragedy, the boy looked squarely in his grandma's eyes and made a solemn promise:
"I tell you what, Grandma, I'll never flick off a Hokie again!"
