Virginia Beach, Virginia (WAVY) — Two years have passed since a mass shooting on Virginia Beach in the city center on Monday.
On May 31, 2019, 12 people were killed, 5 were injured, and hundreds were permanently affected.
To commemorate the lost lives, the city built monuments throughout the region.
If you’re looking for a place to mourn the victims, head to 24th Avenue on Virginia Beach’s oceanfront. There is a sand sculpture inspired by the iconic VB forget-me-not flowers.
The symbol is also depicted on the Mount Trashmore on the front of the hill.
You can also write your desired message on the banner below it.
Returning near where the tragedy took place, you can reach the temporary monument behind Building 15 on the corner of Admiral Degrasse Way and Princess Anne Road.
Twelve potted forgotten grasses represent the victims. You can leave a message on the banner until Wednesday.
City officials do not hold events that meet directly on Mondays. However, the video of the commemorative ceremony is 6am at loveforvb.com.
Tomorrow, more than 40 half-masts in the city will feature flowers that will never forget VB’s love.
The Virginia flag will be displayed half-mast on Tuesday, in accordance with the Governor’s declaration.
