"Today in my grade everyone was doing one of the following:
- Singing JB songs, or
- Covered in purple
There was not one class in which his name was not mentioned, and no one talked about ANYTHING else but him. There was even a touch or two of gossip and girl-talk that had to do with JB.
Girls in my school were:
- Singing him Happy Birthday in the lunchroom,
- Wearing purple-purple hoodies, and
- Posting messages on our announcement board with hilarious clip-art pictures."
