People from all over the world are sending their sympathies and donations to the victims and residents of Boston since last week's bombings.

Wednesday was no different. About 30 students on the campus of the University of Southern Indiana marched for Boston.

Members of USI's Diversity Project and many other students walked laps around the quad protesting all types of violence, particularly last week's horrible events in Boston.

"We always try to bring awareness to all types of diversity here on campus and I believe this is a good way to do that, to bring awareness towards all types of violence around the world, not just guns, but domestic abuse, dating violence, terrorists," said Junior Ariel Crenshaw.

Last year, the Diversity Project held a march for Trayvon Martin.
