Korean-American students at UVa held their own memorial on grounds Monday. The students gathered with posters expressing their grief for the students and families involved in last week's shooting.

They said they weren't just out there because they are Korean-American students, but said they wanted to show support because it's something that everyone should care about.

"It's about time we stand up, and step up, and actually let people know that we are here and we are part of what's going on," said Howard Kim, a Korean-American student.

The students were also collecting donations to send help, setting up a scholarship foundation in honor of the Virginia Tech victims.
