CASTINE – Maine Maritime students came together to hold a candlelight vigil. Hoping for the safe recovery of their friend and classmate.
Students said the worst part is not having answers so tonight they’re holding onto hope and each other to get by.
Dozens gathered on the Maine Maritime lawn, to light a candle and pray for the safe return of their classmate, David Breunig. It was a quiet and quick ceremony. And members of the Breunig family made the trip to be there. The vigil was organized by students, we spoke to one who says it’s been a tough year for the MMA communityut they’re staying strong for each other.
Parker Spear a classmate said, “We are waiting for good news we just want to know the hard part is the not knowing and not understanding and we just want to be here for students and family.”
The school has made a counselor available for any students having difficulty coping in Castine.
