Orange Ribbon

Orange ribbons decorated our high school,

And every house in our community.

Declaring the need for hope and for faith.

They fluttered in the air all winter long,

And by a miracle made it to spring.

But then that miracle began to fade,

The orange ribbon faded to a dead gray.

The time for hope had finally run out,

Instead of a symbol for hope and prayer,

Our orange ribbon became a memory.

Is this a thought about the massacre
Virginia Tech went through a year ago?

No, it's about a friend who died of cancer. When she was given only a few months to live, the high school and community took orange ribbons and tied them everywhere because it was her favorite color.
