LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Students at Bellarmine University felt they needed to do something to show those affected by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that they are not alone.
They decided to organize a student led vigil.
The group prayed for the 17 lives lost. They prayed for their families and their community. They prayed for those affected by the same twisted violence in other states.
They also prayed for action, asking God to help turn their anger and frustration into advocacy and change, particularly about gun violence.
The students also spoke about the difficulties in changing political minds.
Bellarmine President Dr. Susan Donovan wrote an open letter on gun violence in America. Here is an excerpt:
