The vigil that took place in the Western Addition communicty this past Wednesday, August 25th was emotional. I have had a hard time seeing this intersection the same way, and I didn’t even know this person. The loss of Yannick, a visiting tourist from Germany, touched us as community. This fatality, it could have been any of us at any time, our friends, our family and it hurt to see him leave this world hit (&run) by a drunk driver. Our prayers are with his loved ones.
The vigil was very emotional.
May he rest in peace.
