WBZ reports on a memorial vigil last night in honor of Dawnn Jaffier, shot to death while waiting for a parade on Blue Hill Avenue.
The young man sitting next to me on the 66 bus last night was headed to that memorial, as was his friend (apparently a former West End House staffer) who boarded a few stops later. It was heartbreaking to overhear them talking about Dawnn.
Bringing a ca!era didnt feel right. While I didn't know Dawnn I went. Her uncle is an old friend of mine and I wanted to show my support for their family.
The turnout was amazing, the support for the family incredible. The community in the city is amazing at times.
Unfortunately the media was in a mad rush and some were not showing much in the way of manners.
