Watch: Counter-demonstrators march in candlelight to protest the violence in Charlottesville

Hundreds of people gather at the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville on Wednesday evening for a candlelit vigil against hate and violence in the same place where hundreds of torch-carrying white nationalists marched last weekend.

The crowd in Charlottesville sang Amazing Grace, as President Obama had, after the racial murders in Charlestown.

This was my favorite exchange on Twitter yesterday about the aftermath at Charlottesville and Heather Heyer's death.

This video is from The Guardian, August 17, 2017.

The cover photograph is of Heather Heyer's mother who inspired many during this time with her courage and clarity.
Susan Bro made a call to action Wednesday in a memorial service for the 32-year-old Charlottesville woman killed Saturday during an attack by Nazi supporter anddomestic terrorist, James Alex Fields Jr. Fields drove a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing Heyer and injuring 19 others.

    Heather Heyer died 'fighting for what she believed in'

    "They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her," Bro said Wednesday at the city's Paramount Theater.Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and US Sen. Tim Kaine joined her relatives, friends and others for the late-morning public service in a city still coming to grips with Saturday's violence and its aftermath.

    Addendum. Just a remind that during his rants in support of the Alt Right, Nazis and others on Tuesday, #FakePotus Trump praised Heather Heyer's mother -for writing "the nicest things" about him.
