Luckily some students quickly stepped up and organized a candle light vigil in support of victims of child abuse. The facebook event had thousands of people saying there were going to attend and as I walked up to Old Main in the brisk air I was amazed to see the amount of people.
I started towards the front of the crowd with several individuals intently listening to the Blue Band play and several people speak.
I worked my way around the crowd and ended up pretty far back on the lawn. I honestly think it is the most people I have ever seen on the Old Main lawn, and everyone was so respectful and calm.
I managed to get back up to the stairs of Old Main and spotted the interim presidents singing along with the alma matter.
When I walked up the steps and looked over the crowd it was very overwhelming. Candles were glowing in every direction. I was proud now to be an alum, and quietly snuck around the students snapping away.
