Show the Love at UU Congregation of Susquehanna Valley, Northumberland, PA
National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath Interfaith Vigil
Action Date(s): December 18, 2016 - 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm EST
I'll update with coverage after the event. This is our 2nd annual observance of the National Gun-Violence Prevention Sabbath. Last year we had about 150 people despite the very cold weather. People representing Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindu, Buddhists and UUs read prayers. Last year's speaker was a Nurse who spoke about the Public Health implications of Gun violence. An ER doc talked about what guns do to flesh. This year's speaker has been an Anti-Gun Violence Activist for years. We've written a powerful ritual as a call to action. We stand to remember, to take comfort and gain strength, we leave with purpose and Peace.
