Seventh Annual National Vigil for All Victims of Gun Violence

December 05, 2019

A survivor speaks eloquently about the effects of gun violence on her life. 

Last night St. Mark's, Capitol Hill hosted the 7th Annual National Vigil for All Victims of Gun Violence. Those gathered came to remember and lament the lives lost and affected by gun violence in the United States. Moderated by the Rev. Michele Morgan, rector of St. Mark's, the event featured remarks from many elected officials, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Most compelling though, were the testimonies from survivors of gun violence. All present were invited to pray and to commit themselves to advocate for sensible gun protection laws and the end of gun violence.
