Citizens of Danbury to Hold Vigil For Orlando Victims
Standing together to express love and compassion.
A gathering of strength and an out pouring of love often not only helps to heal but it sends a message of hope. Tuesday night in Danbury, the stage is set to do just that.
In a press release statement from the First Congregational Church of Danbury, there will be an inter-faith vigil remembering the victims of the Orlando nightclub shootings.
To stand united, and be a part of the vigil, while showing there is no room for hate and violence is a strong goal. The release states:
We will honor those lost in the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, support the LGBTQ community, reaffirm support for our Muslim community, and decry hate and violence.
The vigil for the victims of the Orlando mass shooting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, at the First Congregational Church of Danbury, 164 Deer Hill Avenue in Danbury. People from all surrounding communities are of course welcome to participate.
One of the victims of the shooting was Torrington, CT native, Kimberly Morris. A vigil was held for her on Friday in Torrington.
