While some cynics may say wearing red is just in the category of "thoughts and prayers", I think if you wear red and post your photos on Facebook, it shows solidarity, and hopefully a good feeling for those impacted!

If you do wear red on Friday, please email me your photo! We will post a collage of those wearing red on the WDEA website!
