Candlelight vigil, June 4, 2007 Massacre in China. Author - Wrightbus
 "And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted; And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that out of many hearts thoughts may be revealed." (Luke II: 34-35)

A candlelight vigil for Nicholas Taft Thomas will be held Tuesday, March 31 at 7 p.m. at Smyrna City Hall in Smyrna, Ga., 2646 Atlanta Rd SE.  "Please tell all friends and family that are interested in showing solidarity and support of our son’s murder by Smyrna Police," said Thomas' father, Huey Thomas, in an email.

"We have also set up a 'Go Fund Me' account as follows for assistance for funeral expenses of Nicholas," Thomas said. Monies will also be put in a memorial services fund account. To donate, go to:

Other mothers have made similar comments, saying the killing of their sons by police will be a "watershed" moment, however, the homicide of young men by police is increasing.  According to Killed by Police, 275 people have been killed by police in 2015. In 2014, 1110 people were killed by police.
