Mourning by candlelight

Original post made on Mar 13, 2008

People gathered at St. Francis of Assisi Church in East Palo Alto Wednesday night for an annual candlelighting service in memory of the 230 people who have been killed since the city incorporated in 1983. "We have lost too many beautiful people in the city of tears," a student, Mele Teu, said. Photo by Norbert von der Groeben/Palo Alto Weekly.
