CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - The University Central Arkansas held a candle light vigil for global peace Thursday night.
UCA Students and community members hope that this event will help shed light on global tragedies. The event came about after over 100 people in Paras were killed in an attack last Friday. Around 500 candles were lit just to show support for their friends across the sea.
THV11 talked to a few exchange students on Thursday, who had loved ones hurt in the Paris attacks.
"That's just awful, everything that happened, is really awful," said Swe-zeek Houllier.
Houllier is still numb after the Paris attacks that left her entire country in mourning. Her friend was shot at the Bataclan concert where 87 out of the 129 were killed.
