A large crowd is gathered in front of Old Main on the Penn State campus on Friday night to hold a candlelight vigil for the victims of the alleged sex abuse scandal that's rocked the football program, and the university as a whole, over the course of the last week. It's been one week since word of Jerry Sandusky's grand jury indictment was leaked, and details continue to emerge. Since the initial report, Penn State head coach Joe Paterno has been fired, university president Graham Spanier has resigned and many others are on leave.
But Friday night is a time for healing, for the Penn State students to come together peacefully and remember the victims. A crowd of around 10,000 was expected and judging by the photos from State College it would seem the projections were correct.

Good on you, Penn State students, alumni and anyone else in attendance.
