The murder happened just a few blocks away from the Stonewall Inn, where, in 1969, the gay rights movement was born, bringing a sense of continuance to the vigil. In fact, from the statements during the vigil, rage was heaped upon a society at large rather than focused on any particular group. In many ways, the vigil seemed to make a valiant attempt to transcend hate by overcoming it with determination coupled with pride in the courage of Mark Carson, imploring everyone to be like him. 

Yet no one mentioned the one label that the LGBT's worst enemy usually reserves for itself: "martyr." 

Last week, one anti-marriage equality wag stated: "The forces of evil always always get greedy and then they give us an opportunity to fight back."**

How true.

In the wake of last week's extreme homophobic violence, let's hope that more such vigils take place when violence occurs.

*The video of the vigil is long (30 minutes) but well worth the view.
