Houston: June 15, 2016.  Mayor Sylvester Turner and City staff held a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the victims of the Orlando shooting rampage. 

"Like the rest of the country, Houston is grieving today," said Mayor Turner. "It is past time for us as a country to come together against hatred toward any person or persons based on group affiliation - enough is enough. We stand with Orlando, with the families of those killed or injured, with the LGBT community and against violence anywhere."
