That was not possible Saturday night in Chichester.
Yes, a group of more than 200 gathered to remember those we lost to the heroin scourge. But it is the faces that stay with you. Real faces of real people, lost forever, leaving devastated friends and family to go on.
Their photos were prominently displayed during the vigil.

It's called hope.
We talk about that on today's editorial page.
