More than 20 people gathered in Soldotna Creek Park on Wednesday night in memory of Heather Heyer. Heyer was killed Saturday when a man drove a Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counterprotesters that had gathered in opposition of a rally against the removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville; Virginia. Those who gathered in the park on Wednesday evening held signs with messages like “Racism is not patriotic” and “Say no to racism. Say no to hate. Love wins.” (Photo by Kat Sorensen/Peninsula Clarion)
