It’s been a trying week in Charlottesville. But thanks to a candlelight vigil—featuring an estimated five thousand attendees—CNN and other news channels finally were filled with images of the Grounds most of us remember so fondly.
I’m going to let the sights and sounds do the work here. When you’re done wiping those totally dust-induced tears away, pick up one of STL’s CHARLOTTESVILLE shirts to support local organizations that are helping C-Ville recover.

I've never seen the UVA lawn like this. And this is only a quarter of the people here. Hundreds more marching. pic.twitter.com/t0ChLe1BuC— Nora Neus (@noraneus) August 17, 2017

I have struggled to let go of my anger over what was done to us last weekend, but seeing 5000 of my fellow citizens tonight sure helped. pic.twitter.com/7qCzfBaE1B— Allen Groves (@UVADeanGroves) August 17, 2017
