Vigil for Church Shooting Victims

Reports have been coming in from sources such as The New York Times, that the shootings that took place in Knoxville, Tennessee were committed by a gunman who was angry at "liberals and gays."

Eight people were shot during a Sunday production of a children's play; two are now dead. The shooting took place at the local Unitarian Universalist (UU) Church - the same church that opened its arms to PFLAG meetings.

In response, tomorrow night our Tri-Cities chapter will be holding a vigil:

"In light of the recent tragedy at the UU church in Knoxville, the newly formed Tri-Cities chapter in East Tennessee will be holding a vigil on Wednesday night at 7pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethton. According to the chapter, the show of support will be 'an opportunity to share some feelings so we don’t think we are going through this alone.'”
