I attended the vigil Friday night. It was hard to go to, both because reality hit home and because you can really tell it'* rocked our community. Overall it was a good vigil, but politicians and media alike used it to garner interest.
Someone needs to tell our secretary of state that a prayer vigil is NOT a good time to talk about the necessity of gun control.
On the upside, our community is really pulling together for support and recovery. I've never seen so many people wearing NIU colors in my entire life. There'* counseling being offered everywhere, and there are memorial funds going. I'm proud of this community, and still proud of NIU.
