Organized by several local churches and the Gilmer County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, the Vigil (originally scheduled for the City Square, but moved inside because of threat of rain) was a moment to remember those who are struggling with the pain of addiction, including the victims, their families, and loved ones. The Coalition's goal is to spread hope to those afflicted. While West Virginia suffers from high rates of addiction and substance abuse, we are also a state and county of resilient, hopeful people.
