Candlelight vigil for Heather Heyer

Charlottesville, Virginia, where hundreds of people gathered Wednesday night to march for peace.  

"They tried to kill my child to shut her up.  Well guess what?  You just magnified her," said Susan Bro, Heyer's mother at the vigil, which was met with cheers of support.

The candlelight vigil was held after an emotional memorial for Heather Heyer, the 32 year old woman killed in that horrific car attack.  The show of support coming as President Donald Trump continues to lose backing from the business community.  

The president was forced to shut down his major business advisory councils amid an exodus of corporate leaders.  Representative Tom Reed says, "That's an individual choice those CEO's made. But if you're going to influence the agenda, you have to be at the table, talking in the room, and pitching your vision as to how you want to go forward, and so obviously, they chose to leave that table. From my perspective, they've lost an opportunity to influence the agenda."

The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, recently announced a $1 million donation to two civil rights organizations.
