A moment of silence, please.
At 8 p.m. Tuesday, in front of Old Main, Penn State lit a candle in the darkness to oppose terror, brutality and bloodshed around the world.
It was called the Vigil Against Global Violence, and two students made it happen.
“The day the attacks happened in Brussels, I woke up to the news in a panic because I have family and friends in Belgium,” said Hope Schmid.
“I was so shocked and reached out to Ben Wideman, the pastor for the 3rd Way Collective organization, telling him how distressed and sad I was,” she said. “He suggested talking to Brandon (Sullivan) and he connected us immediately. Brandon was all for doing another vigil.”
