My Family Showed Support at Vigil for Gun Violence Victims
Groups from all over the nation came out as we also celebrated the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated on April 4, 1968. We heard from key officials, clergy who offered prayers and youth who recited words of hope and healing once spoken by MLK. We even held up cut-out hearts to represent those who were no longer with us.
Afterwards, we were led to the General Assembly Building to speak with legislators with regards to what they can do to bring about better background checks for those try to purchase guns. The children and I had the privilege of speaking with House of Delegate Member Daun Sessoms Hester, who is not only my sorority sister but who I also grew up under in leadership at my childhood church Mt. Gildead.
We got home a little after 8 pm. It was a day well spent. My children and I were truly impacted by what we experienced. It was stated that this was the largest turnout thus far, which also included the most youth to participate in the vigil. We'll be attending next year's vigil.
Please speak out against gun violence as it affects not only the families of the victims, but the communities and our world as well. Get in touch with your legislators and tell them that you want tougher background checks on gun purchases. Guns left in the wrong hands can be a deadly situation.
