Marijuana youth sentencing opponents plan Sunday prayer vigil

David Scribner, former editor of The Berkshire Eagle and a correspondent for
the Hill Country Observer monthly reports that a group of more than seven
clergy from all over Berkshire County have organized to hold a prayer vigil at
the courthouse in Pittsfield on Sunday (Apri 2) at 2 p.m. Scribner reports the
intention of this interfaith prayer vigil is "to provide an opportunity to
transcend the purely political and allow people with differing views to come
together with an affirmative aim." Scribner says members of the clergy will
lead the vigil with prayers and words of support for Mitchell Lawrence, his
family and the families of others involved in cases like this. And also, for
those involved in the community, in law enforcement and in the justice system,
in the hope that these and other cases like these will be handled with wisdom
and mercy."
