UK Students Mark Anniversary Of Virginia Tech Massacre

Today marks a somber anniversary for people across the country. One year ago Wednesday, a student opened fire in a building on the Virginia Tech campus, killing 32 people, including students and teachers.

Vigils, gatherings and moments of silence were held on the Virginia Tech campus to remember the lives lost.

The anniversary is also being marked here in the bluegrass.

Many students at the University of Kentucky are reaching out to those at Virginia Tech.

They're signing a banner, placed outside Blanding towers, to show support. The banner will later be sent to Blacksburg, VA.

A candlelight vigil is also planned for Wednesday night at 7:15 to remember the victims.

There's also a prayer tent near the Blanding towers that will be open 24 hours a day until Sunday.
