Two events--one happy, one very sad

We attended our first Erie Philharmonic lunch time concert. They are held 3-4 times in the summer and feature one section of the orchestra. Today was a brass quintet.

Daniel Meyer was there to plug the upcoming season for the orchestra especially the pops concerts. Beautiful weather,  great music, Erie at its summer best.

Five hours later and 2 miles away, we attended the latest Take Back the Site prayer vigil for a woman killed in late June. There was a very large crowd in attendance, lots of friends and family.

This is the first of three vigils we'll be having, as two more homicides happened in the first two weeks of this month, one has shocked the city as a 14 year old shot an 18 year old who wouldn't give him his bike.
