Tribute to those killed in the terror attack on Garissa University (video)

On April 2, 2015, individuals wielding guns stormed the Garissa University College, in the wee hours of the morning as some of the students were heading for prayers and some prepared for class.

The gunmen opened fire at the students, leaving 147 dead.

A public vigil was held on the 7th of April at Uhuru Park’s Freedom Corner in memory of the lives lost in the attack.

Their memories will be carried in the hearts of their friends, families, colleagues and the Kenyan community at large.

This video with the song See You Again by Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth is a special tribute to those shattered dreams and lost lives.
