On Wednesday, the community peacefully gathered at the University of Virginia for a candlelight vigil following the violence that erupted in Charlottesville over the weekend.
The hundreds of people in attendance sang songs, marched against hate, and held a moment of silence for the three lives lost — counter-protester Heather Heyer, and State Troopers Jay Cullen and Berke Bate.
Never been so proud of my alma mater. I wish everyone there a wonderful year full of friendship, compassion and enlightenment. Some traditions-but not all-deserve to be preserved. #Charlottesville #uva #HoosTogetherA post shared by Katie Couric (@katiecouric) on Aug 16, 2017 at 7:41pm PDT
