Candlelight vigil held for Las Vegas

Melissa Reise, Managing Editor

The morning of Oct. 3, half a dozen students gathered in the Ley Chapel for a candlelight vigil for the victims of Oct. 1’s shooting in Las Vegas.

The vigil began with Chaplain Lex-Cade White leading the students in prayer, during which she talked about reflecting on the many who lost their lives as well as the ones wounded in hospitals, in addition to hoping that people can work together and find a way to end the violence.

Hymns were sung, and Chaplain Assistant Sarah Dahm read from Psalm 23. Afterward, the students gathered and passed the flame of their candles around the circle. The service ended with the hymn, “Going Out and Coming In.”

“Some students felt moved and wanted to have a service to recognize the people who were lost,” Cade-White stated. She feels that by allowing students to take part in the vigil, they were able to find a sense of peace and unity in a time of confusion.
