On Thursday, June 28, 2018, a gunman
opened fire in the newsroom of Capital-Gazette Communications
killing five. The community has rallied around The Capital and
Annapolis will be stronger because of this loss. But there are
We decided to head to Caliente Grill and invite whomever wanted to come and talk about whatever they wanted to talk about--words of encouragement, condolences, or just thoughts. Caliente Grill generously agreed to donate $1 per drink sold to the Capital-Gazette Families Fund and we raised $200. THANK YOU ROXANNA AND RAUL FROM CALIENTE!
But for over an hour, we heard from
public officials, the public in general, a reporter from The
Capital and one of the survivors. We had a big crowd and
there was a lot of noise, but have a listen as Paul Gillespie
recalls that afternoon in the newsroom, Chase Cook talks about the
fortitude in pressing forward, Susan O'Brien on the importance of
local news, Yasemin Jamison on her thoughts, and a poem about this
place we now find ourselves in.
To all who came out..thank you. Please continue to support The Capital as you can. You can donate to the fund here (there is a matching gift up to $1 million), you can subscribe here (and I encourage you to do, we do), and when you see these folks out in the community, please take a moment to thank them for what they do. Our local paper, The Capital--or as some will lovingly call it the Crab Wrapper, is the glue that holds us all together.
