No Garnet here but I'm making an attempt with Black and Red***

I will offer prayers for the victims and their families. It was a tragedy that we wouldn't wish on anyone, but it is still solid orange at my house today. Go Tigers!

Didn't they wear orange in respect for the death of the Clemson student.

That's fine, and if that made them feel more respectful of the situation I'm glad that is what They Chose to do. What works for one or a million, it don't always work for everyone. Respect that, I 100% respect the decision you made for yourself. So don't pressure everyone else and trying to make them feel guilty or bad b/c your decision don't feel right for them. I promise you that all gamecocks did not wear orange, and I 100% respect their decision not to choose to wear orange....

Tragic loss of life in the midlands but has nothing to do with clothing choices. Or colors. Or schools. Seems weak to me.

Let folks decide on their own how to react to such tragedies.


Life is just a social adventure. What you do, who you are

is part of the path. This is being supportive - one of the key parts of being in a society.

Next time there's a tragedy in your family, I'm sure you will appreciate all the hugs, cards, words of support, prayers from random people, and other gestures that you receive afterwards. That's exactly what this was. Nobody's stupid enough to believe there's anything more that can be done...we certainly can't un-fire a gun or bring a deceased person back to life. But showing support to one's neighbors and colleagues in times of tragedy is important. And to belittle it is just you being a jackass.

I was admittedly struck sadness and asking myself over, and over, and over why would you take someone elses life b/c yours has come to the kill yourself. That is so selfish and so sad at the same instance. And I am to so sorry that two lives were taken by one b/c all logical thinking had escaped one to the point of no return. Gamecock, UGA, FSU fan who ever their team is, I have never had hate so thick in my heart to wish or want to see another fan that's not a fan to Clemson to die or get killed. Not that it really makes much difference what they were, they didn't in no way shape or form deserve death by the hands of someone that the two of them at one time in their life loved each other. Like I've already said, if life gets to hard for you to cope, don't take somebody else's life b/c you blame them b/c the feeling they once had for you are gone . That is so selfish and so wrong. At least give this a thought, if you do what she did just remember this, you're aren't going to the same place, so you really done nothing that would keep you together. I'm really sorry that this happen with two human beings regardless of their college affiliation, I am sincerely sorry, and my thought and prayers goes out to both their families. I'm 62 right now and I have never dressed in gamecock clothing and I didn't today either. Hate me if that is how important that was for you. But you can't know how I feel by the colors I wear today or any other day. I feel really bad for the couple and their families. But I'm not sorry I didn't wear garnet and black, I shouldn't have to wear my rivals colors that I would have hated wearing, to make strangers to me feel better. I feel bad enough as it is, why would I do something that would have made me feel worst. I'm allorangeallthetime!!!

Have you ever participated in a prayer list?

Then you've participated in something to make strangers feel better. If you're not comfortable wearing USC colors for a day, fine. Everyone has their own thresholds and comfort limits, and I don't begrudge anyone that. All you have to say is "it's not for me", which is more or less what you did.

Prayers for the families of involved. As much as I dislike their sports teams, I hate to hear of a tragedy happening, and especially one like this. How far we have sunk to read more and more about these things!
