Local Korean Americans Hold Vigil For Virginia Tech

By  | 

A vigil was held in Colorado Springs Wednesday night by Korean Americans to remember the people who died at the hand of a fellow immigrant.

Members of 12 different churches gathered at the Korean Baptist Church, and it was a very emotional night for everyone there.

There were songs, tears and lots of prayers.

“Not because we're Korean, because we're American and because we care," said one local Korean American.

And for some there is worry. Worry that the shooting will become a racial issue.

But their message was simple. To pray for America. And most importantly, to pray for the victims' families and friends, and everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.
