DENVER (CBS4)– About 100 students gathered for a moment of silence at the University of Denver on Monday afternoon to honor those killed and injured in Orlando.

Inside the Driscoll Student Center organizers also led a shout of anger where several people shouted words like “enough,” “stop,” and “love one another.”

Organizers believe there will be a similar message at Monday night’s vigil at Cheesman Park.

Event organizers with the advocacy group Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays or PFLAG are encouraging everyone to attend and join them for a time of healing.

“I think what tonight will bring is a service in a location that is iconic for the gay community. I think it’ll provide everybody the opportunity to come together, to help each other, love each other and just support each other,” said PFLAG Volunteer Brett James.

Organizers told CBS4 about 1,300 candles have been donated for the vigil but may run out because so many are expected to attend. Those attending are asked to bring their own candles in case.
