LYNCHBURG, VA - June 12: 49 candles, one for each victim, along with an arch of rainbow candles illuminate the alter of First Christian Church as Roger Scott leads attendees in singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" during a vigil for the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando on Monday, June 12, 2017 in Lynchburg, Va. About 60 Lynchburgers paid their respects at a service led by clergy from different faiths and churches in the area. 49 paper doves were handed out, each with a name of a victim, and as victims' names were read people with the corresponding paper dove stood. A rainbow flag, which had hung on the roadside sign for The First Christian Church since the tragedy last year, was stolen over the weekend and replaced with an American Flag with the words "Levticus 18:22" written on it. Rev. Cowgill said the church replaced that flag with new flags, one rainbow and one American flag. (Photo by Jay Westcott/The News & Advance)
