It seems hard to believe that Tuesday, Sept. 16 will be the one-year anniversary of the terrible shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard that left 12 people dead.
The Navy will be holding its official remembrance ceremony within the walls of the WNY at 8 a.m., lead by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. Vice Adm. William Hilarides, commander of the Naval Sea Systems Command, will read the names of the victims, and a bell will toll for each of them.
Later that same day, there will be a community remembrance of the event, starting at 6 pm at Canal Park. Mayor Vince Gray, Councilmember Tommy Wells, Vice Adm. Hibarides, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and other officials will be in attendance, as will the US Navy Ceremonial Guard. The memorial is described as including "prayers, readings, meditation, and music to honor the Navy Yard victims, survivors and heroic civilian and military first responders who acted to save lives."
This public ceremony is being organized by the Near Southeast Community Partners group, to honor not only the importance of the Washington Navy Yard to the neighborhood's past and future but also the many residents of Near Southeast who are connected to the military.
The remembrance at Canal Park is free and open to the public.
UPDATE: There is another remembrance scheduled on the 16th: the St. Vincent de Paul Catholic church at South Capitol and M will be holding a memorial mass at 12:10 pm for those killed in the shooting.

Last September 16 was an awful, tragic, day. My thoughts and sympathy is with the families of those who've lost loved ones at the Navy Yard last year.

It is well past time that we have background checks to prevent the mentally ill from purchasing guns, no questions asked. As we've seen with Tucson, Aurora, Virginia Tech, the Navy Yard, Newton, and other tragedies, when those suffering from mental illness are allowed to easily acquire guns, too frequently there are tragic consequences.

September 16th was a tragic day for the Navy and our community. Near Southeast Community Partners wanted to bring the community together to honor those who lost their lives, those who survived, their families, first responders and everyone in the building and area who were forever touched by this tragic event.
Thank you to the Navy, those who have supported this effort including Janet Weston of WC Smith (Park Manager) who donated use of the Park, Council Member Tommy Wells, Charles Allen (both offered full support from the beginning), dignitaries who will be in attendance , community members who supported us and our Taskforce for their tireless work.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Canal Park on Tuesday evening.
Never forget and God bless the USA.
