Note that there are more tweets than I can show here.  The acknowledgement is that the painting displayed in the links (taken by someone in 2007, before I started this site) is from the original VT incident.  Here is the image from 2007 that’s been shared:

The idea is that UVA students are in solidarity with the VT community, despite any rivalry.
