Tallahassee, FL-People in Tallahassee are coming together to pray for the victims of the tragic Oklahoma tornado.

About a half dozen students from Florida A&M and FSU prayed Saturday in front of the Eternal Flame on Famu's campus.

The group also held a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives.

Pastor Simmons of Jacob's Chapel led the prayer service.

"We just want to send our condolences and let them know our prayers are with them," said Janay White, who helped organize the vigil.

The vigil was put on by the 'Girls 2 Divas Mentoring Program.'

The group works with teen girls to help develop life skills
