DFW Residents Honor Victims of Terrorism

Residents around DFW gathered at Dealey Plaza in Downtown Dallas to honor those lost in acts of terrorism. The recent attacks in Paris motivated the event coordinators to plan a vigil and shared their thoughts on the grassy knoll along with guest speakers of different religions. Organizers also coordinated the event in hopes of shedding light on the importance of combating xenophobia in the area. Attendees were of all different backgrounds and beliefs, bringing signs displaying messages advocating peace. Those who attended were also involved in the Muslim Student Association at the University of North Texas. Students can show support for our own MSA here at UTA as well.
