Mother of Heather Heyer: make her death count

Susan Bro, the mother of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer, gave an emotional plea to those gathered at her daughter's memorial service on Wednesday.

  • "We don't all have to die. We don't all have to sacrifice our lives. They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well guess what, you just magnified her."
  • "You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would've done and you make it happen. You take that extra step. You find a way to make a difference in the world."
  • "This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy... I'd rather have my child, but if I have to give her up, by golly, let's make it count."
