[PHOTO] Four photos from the Dufferin Grove vigil

Yesterday evening at 7, I went to the Toronto Community Vigil for the victims of the recent Pittsburgh mass shooting at Dufferin Grove Park, organized by If Not Now Toronto. It was a necessary act of solidarity, gathered under the powerful yellow glow of the streetlights of Havelock Street on the eastern edge of the park and the dimmer glow of house lights in the neighbourhood beyond, a gathering-together of mourning for the dead–in Pittsburgh, in Kentucky, in Gaza–and a statement of the need to join together to resist the alt-right and white nationalism. I’m still afraid of the way the world is evolving, but I don’t think I feel quite so alone.
