A small crowd gathered in Jefferson Park on Sunday evening to remember the men and women lost in the Washington Navy Yard massacre this month.
“This has torn me up, so if you see a tear drop, I can’t help it, because it’s just so, so sad,” said Alicia Rasin, the victims’ advocate who organized the vigil in Church Hill.
