West New York holds vigil in remembrance of shooting victims
Nearly 300 West New Yorkers came out in solidarity on Monday evening to remember the victims of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting that took place last week. The names of the victims were read and there were multiple moments of silence and prayer in a town nearly 75 miles from Newtown, showing that you don’t always need to have a direct connection to a tragedy in order to grieve.
In a speech delivered in both English and Spanish, Mayor Felix Roque reassured West New York parents that security was high in the town’s public schools. Afterwards, he said that he was speaking as a mayor, but also as a parent and American.
“As a nation, we have endured far too much pain, profound loss of life and more questions than answers about where we are headed as a society and as human beings,” he said. “This tragedy has no boundaries and people all over the world have their hearts broken.”
Other speakers included leaders in the town’s religious community, Police Director Michael Indri, and Superintendent of Schools John Fauta, who could barely contain his grief as he struggled to assure parents that every necessary step was being taken to keep their children safe.
“As an educator and a parent, this type of thing is our worst nightmare,” he said.
