Flushing residents commemorates Jan. 6 Capitol attack with virtual candlelight vigil


Three Flushing residents were joined by Councilwoman Linda Lee outside of the Flushing Public Library for a virtual candlelight vigil on Thursday, Jan. 6, to mark the one-year anniversary of the violent insurrection attack on the U.S. Capitol. 

Henry Krumholz, who organized the vigil, recalled watching a mob of then-President Donald Trump supporters pushing through barriers and storming the Capitol seeking to overturn Trump’s loss in the 2020 presidential election. According to Krumholz, he was in a complete state of shock.
