ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A memorial service for the six students who were slain four days before was held Tuesday afternoon (May 27). Students, teachers, and parents shared thoughts about those students whose lives were lost. Students at the University of California at Santa Barbara returned to campus for a "day of mourning" on Tuesday, four days after the son of a Hollywood film director killed six students in a stabbing and shooting rampage across the seaside community. Richard Martinez, whose son Christopher was shot and killed at a delicatessen on Friday night, encouraged students at the vigil to stand up and shout "not one more" as a message to lawmakers in Washington, D.C., referring to the number of lives lost due to gun violence in the United States. The university canceled classes for Tuesday, the first day since the killings on Friday that the campus would have been open, but faculty were asked to be on hand to meet with distraught students.
