The somber crowd was in sharp contrast to the scene last month when a protest started between pro-Chinese and pro-Tibet students on campus. The student asks for donations that will go to the Chinese Red Cross. She says right now it's hard to be so far fro home. An open air slide show projects scene after scene of the disaster. This Chinese student says she wants to go home to help. Those who have family members in Sichuan Province are feeling especially uneasy.
