More than 50 people gathered this evening at a snow-dusted Tyler Park for a candlelight vigil for the victims of Friday’s mass shooting in Connecticut. With sleet lightly falling, most huddled under the three small canopy tents someone had brought and shared a flame from candle to candle. A couple of people read poems and then the roster of the victims. As each name sounded, a white balloon was released skyward. After that a recording of “Imagine” by the Beatles was played and then everyone sang “Silent Night.” With that, folks blew out their candles but loitered for a while, enjoying the company of others. Below is some video I shot that might give a sense of the gathering.
