Student ‘white outs’ for #jabs

Students across Minnesota wore white t-shirts on Thursday to pay tribute to Jack Jablonski, the 16-year old Benilde-St. Margaret sophomore who was paralyzed after being checked from behind during a junior varsity hockey game on Friday, Dec. 30.

Doctors on Thursday confirmed Jablonski’s spinal cord was severed and he would likely not walk again.  Thursday was also the day students at Benilde-St. Margaret wore white in honor of their classmate.

School president Bob Tift told reporters the ‘white out’ idea appeared to be student-driven and had spread to several other schools, via social media.  A quick check of Twitter - where the #jabs hashtag has become a go-to place for updates and messages about Jablonski - showcased that.  Here is a sample of photos posted on Twitter from around Minnesota.
