Candlelight vigil at Penn State

More than 10,000 Penn State students show their support for the victims of a Penn State child sex abuse scandal at a peaceful gathering in front of Old Main on Penn State’s campus in State College, Pennsylvania on November 11, 2011.

After some Penn State students acted like idiots on Wednesday by staging violent protests after Joe Paterno was fired, many more students did the right thing and tried to show their support for the alleged victims of Jerry Sandusky. An estimated 10,000 students gathered for a candlelight vigil on campus last night.

Penn State plays Nebraska today in a game that has Big Ten implications, but everyone will be focused on the crowd and how everyone reacts. Let’s hope that the class showed last night is repeated again today at the game.
