Virginia Tech Holds Candlelight Vigil

Candlelight Vigil

by Kevin Caruso

April 18, 2007

Many tears were shed last night as thousands of Virginia Tech students, faculty members, and members of the community held a candlelight vigil in honor of the 32 people who were killed in Monday’s massacre.

Some prayed.

Some sang hymns.

And the entire crowd occasionally yelled the university catchcry: “Hokies, Hokies, Hokies.”

The Virginia Tech community consists of an amazing group of people who deeply care for each other.

God bless them all.

the angels we lost:
