Guam - A special prayer vigil was held last night at the Ypao Beach Park in Tumon. The Guam Visitors Bureau, the Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association and several local businesses hosted the service. President of the Guam Ministerial Association Pastor Roy Burk said a prayer for those who have died as a result of the tragic incident.
"We are left with our memories, So I pray to you now in memory of those who lost their lives in this tragic event. There are more than a nuclear scenario to compared. They're more than the subtotal of lives that are lost. They're more than their affect on the world's economy and more of the affect on our local military expansion. These were sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and loved ones," he said.
Residents purchased candles for a dollar each. All proceeds went to the Japan Club of Guam to help provide monetary assistance for the victims.
