Take Back the Site: Timothy L Smith

Take Back the Site: Timothy L Smith

A small group gathered on November 10 to pray in memory of Timothy Smith at the site where he was fatally beaten earlier this year. After being on life support for a few weeks, he died of his injuries on September 13. Timmy, who was 80, was staying at Erie City Mission at the time of the attack that happened just down the street. Sister Mary Ellen Plumb said, “I think it reminds us always that violence is never a good choice. And if we can stand for nonviolence in every situation where violence occurs, then we can change our own hearts so that kind of thing happens less. We can help change the hearts of others by our own love and reconciliation.” Learn more about Take Back the Site Vigils on the Benedictines for Peace website.
