Vigil held at Michigan State University in honor of the victims of the Oxford High School shooting
EAST LANSING, Michigan. – Candlelight lit the skies in the heart of Spartan country on Tuesday night as a vigil was held at Michigan State University in remembrance of the victims of the Oxford High School shooting.
“It meant a lot to me, personally, just because it’s nice to know that people care so far away from home and people who aren’t even connected there,” said Logan Nicks, Oxford graduate. .
Nicks and several other Oxford High School graduates were in the crowd, but this time it was the students at Michigan State University who wanted to pay tribute to him.
“My brother is in high school so I was worried about him and overall I was heartbroken with all the deaths, all the injuries, everyone affected,” said Ashley Brandt.
“It means a lot to me personally, coming from Oxford. It’s so heartwarming to see everyone come out, ”said Kaylie Seeling, MSU student.
There was also another reason for the rally – the group behind the vigil, “Students Call for Action”, was formed to try to end gun violence in the first place.
“It’s a human question. Children are dying and we must work together to prevent it, ”said Dhriti Marri.
“Gun violence is something that affects everyone and we couldn’t imagine what Oxford is going through at the moment, but our hearts are with them and we are here to support them however we can,” said Annie Heitmeier.
