The University of Missouri Nepalese Student Association held a vigil Friday night to honor those who have died in the Nepal earthquake aftermath. A crowd of around 60 students and community members gathered in Speaker’s Circle on the MU campus to light candles forming the outline of Nepal and phrases like “Mizzou Loves Nepal” and #StayStrongNepal.
