Hartford vigil to remember the Newtown victims on Dec. 14, 2012

A vigil to remember the tens of thousands who died as a result of gun violence, including the 20 children and six educators from Newtown, will begin at 3:40 p.m. today.

The vigil will be held at the National Cathedral in Washington. Those who are unable to attend will be able to watch the event here at newtownaction.org/vigil/.

The service will encompass the themes of remembrance, resolve, hope, and inspiration. The first portion will focus on remembrance with immediate family members of gun violence victims from across the country sharing their stories. The second will center on survivors and others impacted by gun violence who have become advocates. The third portion will consist of young people who have been impacted by violence, concentrating on hope and inspiration moving forward.

The service also will incorporate songs by the World Children’s Choir and Carole King. The vigil will conclude with a candle lighting by the entire Congregation.
