Black ribbon movement for Mary Granados

Hey everyone, there is a movement happening in the postal groups. Everyone try to attach black ribbons either to your POV, arm, badge, anything for the next week to honor the life of Mary Granados. You can add her zip code 79762, or #postalstrong, or #postallivesmatter to the ribbon or nothing. Just a plain black ribbon would work too. Display it starting tomorrow through Saturday. Thank you. Please share.. We are all #postalfamily!
