Despite the happiness and joy that accompany the holiday season, all Americans continue to reel from the vicious shooting at Sandy Hook. The feelings that such an event stirs up resonate with all of us, but for some more than others. Students and any individuals involved with Virginia Tech University understand what it is like to go through such an ordeal. 32 people were shot at the VT campus in 2007. Now, the Virginia Tech football team will wear special helmet decals that have the number 58 on it and the word “prevail”. The number signifies the total body count between the Sandy Hook and VT shootings, while the word is the mantra of the entire VT campus. Instead of helmet decals, all Virginia Tech coaches and other staff will wear actual ribbons on their shirts.
