Sixty-eight empty pairs of shoes.
For 68 victims of gun violence.
The Morris Area Committee to Reduce Gun Violence marked Sunday’s four-month anniversary of the Newtown, CT, massacre with shoes, symbolizing every New Jersey resident killed by guns since the shootings in Connecticut.
Councilwoman Rebecca Feldman, co-founder of the committee, organized the Morristown event in cooperation with Moms Demand Action, the Million Moms March and Cease-Fire New Jersey. Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty also came out to show his support.
Rebecca called the memorial a “call to action” for state and federal legislators to enact “common-sense” gun laws.
Our thanks to Morristown First Lady Mary Dougherty for these photos.
