Candlelight Vigil for School Shooting Set for Sunday night in Edmonds
The community is invited to a February 18, 7:00 p.m. Candlelight Vigil at Edmonds United Methodist Church 828 Caspers St, Edmonds, to honor victims and survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.
Local faith and community leaders will gather for a time of contemplation, prayer and discernment and will be asked to consider the role of guns in our society and the need for safety of people young and old.
"Three of the 10 worst mass shootings in our country have happened in the last several months," said Rev. Sandy Brown of the church. "It's time for us to call for a cultural change that changes the role of guns in our society, and for stricter and smarter laws the keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people."
The candlelight service is free of charge and all community members are welcome.
