One response to “Vigil to remember Las Vegas

  1. Welcome by Representative of Moms Demand Action, saying that once again we were there in remembrance of victims of a mass shooting. Then LD 9 State Senate candidate Victoria Steele expressed anger that this type of gun violence had occurred once more, citing that 91 people die a day from guns in America. Then CD 2 candidate Billy Kovacs asked the 100 plus people at the vigil, who had had friends/family shot in the past? Many raised their hands (including me). Another CD 2 candidate Mary Matiella spoke of respect for all, and love to make this a better society. Ward 6 Councilman Steve Kovachik sent a message which was read aloud (but he arrived later to the vigil). Last to speak was Army Reserve Chaplain Owen Chandler, who said that we need to “hold up our heads” and go forth into the darkness. Tucson Tragedy survivor Patricia Maisch was present as well, as was CD 2 candidate Dr. Matt Heinz.
