Southborough resident holds vigil against violence

If you drove past the intersection of Routes 30 and 85 earlier this week, you might have noticed Southborough resident Jim Shay sitting in a lawnchair at the edge of St. Mark’s field. A sign next to him announced the purpose: it was a vigil against family violence.

Shay told the Metrowest Daily News, “I’m always touched by the impact it has on people,” he said. “It gives them hope, makes them feel as though people acknowledge the existence of this issue – this (need) to talk about it (and) share their experiences.”
