A Light for Pittsburgh

News

A solemn vigil was held on the step of the Vigo County Courthouse Monday night, as more than a hundred community members honored victims of both the Pittsburgh and Kentucky shootings.  

A list of victims’ names were read and words of hope and loved were shared, to show the Wabash Valley cares. 

“A vigil was important I think just because it’s a way to symbolize light and love and it’s something that transcends faith traditions, and everyone understands that it’s a coming together for a positive purpose,” Lori Henson said.  

“And when physically when we stand together, then we can be more effective in actually working together tomorrow and the next day and the next day,” Sister Barbara Battista said.  

The vigil came together in less than 24 hours and members of the local synagogue were in attendance.
