There was a sea of candlelight at an emotional vigil in Charlottesville, Va., Wednesday night as thousands gathered at the UVA campus. The gatherers chanted "love wins" and sang "We Shall Overcome" and "Amazing Grace" as candles and signs featuring slogans of hope and admiration were placed at the base of the Thomas Jefferson statue. It was a remarkable act of healing and unity as the procession followed the same route of the neo-Nazi torchlight parade that triggered last weekend's violence.
