Candlelight vigil for peace in Newark, where people are 'upset and confused'

From Newark-

Sirens wailed as police and fire equipment rushed past the place of worship Sunday night where people gathered for the Prayer Vigil for Peace at Trinity and St. Philip's Cathedral in Newark.

“We needed to have a witness in response to Ferguson and Staten Island,” said Episcopal Bishop Mark Beckwith. “People are upset and confused and we offer hope, together, in a commitment to a more just world,” Beckwith added.

Dozens came to the church, which traces its history to the early 18th century. Some wore a bulls-eye on their backs.
