vigil held for laura ling and euna lee

Here's a local news story out of Sacramento about a vigil that was held earlier this week for Current TV journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who have been detained in North Korea since last month and now face espionage charges: Vigil Held for Journalist Detained in North Korea.

The vigil was held at Del Campo High School, where Laura Ling is an alumnus. Members of the community, friends and former teachers of Ling gathered in support her and Euna Lee. Some of Ling's family members attended the vigil, but said they couldn't go into detail regarding her ordeal due to the sensitive nature of the case.

If convicted on the espionage charge, however, the women could face at least five years in prison. That's crazy. At this point, there's little any of us can do except keep these two in our prayers and continue to spread awareness about the situation.
