BOZEMAN - Dealing with their own threat of violence this week did not stop Bozeman High School students from holding a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the lives lost in Newtown, Connecticut.
The vigil started at p.m. Friday with the lighting of candelarias, each inscribed with either a hopeful message or the name of one lost at last week's tragic shooting. Students say this is a necessary way for them to remember and understand the loss.
"No matter what age we are, I mean, it scares us when a tragedy happens, and I think it scares us more when we don't address things, and so this was important to just address this as a community and recognize it in our own town," Bozeman High student Georgia Haniuk said.
Another vigil, began at 5:30 p.m. and is being held at the Pilgrim Congregational Church on 2118 South 3rd Avenue in Bozeman.
