Vigil This Sunday
Join members of the Burlington community this weekend to grieve for the victims of the horrific shooting at a night club in Orlando this past Sunday.
The Burlington Interfaith Clergy, together with State Representative Ken Gordon, will host a vigil on Sunday from 1:30 to 2 p.m. on the Burlington Town Common in memory of the innocent lives that were lost in the senseless and unprovoked attack in Orlando this week, a release from Gordon’s office says.
“The entire community is welcome to gather as we pay tribute and remember the victims of the tragedy,” the invite says. “We stand in solidarity with all who mourn in the spirit of caring and concern.”
On Sunday, June 12, an assailant identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen instigated a mass shooting inside of Pulse, a night club in Orlando, Florida catering to the LBGTQ community. The shooting resulted in 49 deaths and 53 injuries and is the deadliest mass shooting attack in modern American history.
