Ohio State students, faculty, and places of worship came together at a vigil Monday night to focus on healing and moving forward after the terrifying attacks earlier that morning. 

They talked about coming together and praying for peace and hoping for speedy recoveries for the nine people who were hurt today. 

The church is a stone's throw from where the attacks happened earlier and dozens of people, from different walks of faith, are offering support and peace for students who really need it right now. 

Groups from across campus, representing different religions came together for a vigil on campus Monday night. 

Their message is simple. To pray for peace. 

And every person confident the Ohio State University will heal and move forward together. 

Several churches and organizations are open right now to counsel students here on campus - many of them have extended their hours tomorrow for the same reason.
