Over the weekend, the communities of Tucson, Marana and Oro Valley came together to remember, reflect and honor the victims of the January 8 shooting. From vigils, to Safeway unveiling a memorial where the shooting occured, thousands turned out at various events. First responders to the tragedy were honored. Heroes from the horrific day were recognized, and activities were centered around healing. The weekend was capped off with the University of Arizona candlelight vigil, where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords led the Pledge, and candles were lit for all 19 victims.
