Peter Read Speaks at Lie-In

Title

Peter Read Speaks at Lie-In

Description

Peter Read, who lost his daughter Mary in the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech, speaks at a student "lie-in" on the drillfield on April 16, 2008, A Day of Remembrance. Organized by a Virginia Tech senior, the lie-in was designed as both a memorial to the victims and a protest against easy access to firearms. Family and friends of the victims spoke at the event before dozens of supporters laid down in silent protest and reflection.
