Northern Illinois University junior Nathan Hays (left) is one of five students who lit candles Friday Feb. 9, in honor of the five students killed during the shooting that occured on campus in 2008. A candlelight vigil was held in the Duke Ellington Ballroom at the Holmes Student Center on the campus of Northern Illinois University. Attendees lit candles in honor of those affected by the events of Feb. 14, 2008 and reflected on the healing and strength of the community since that day. The vigil is just the start of events scheduled to mark the passage of 10 years and honor the lives of the five students lost.
