About 50 people came out to Cedar Rose Park in Berkeley on Saturday evening, despite the rain, to take time to reflect on the tragedy that occurred in Newtown, CT, on Friday. The gathering was organized by Suzanne Teran and Sheela Jivan, who were inspired by a Move.org initiative to hold vigils at the same time across the nation this weekend. Other Bay Area vigils were held in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Richmond, Alameda, and Oakland.
“I think folks appreciated being able to come together as a community — many mentioned that,” said Teran.
