Secret Service Disrupts Candlelight Vigil for Cancer-Stricken Children in Washington D.C

The Secret Service disrupted a candlelight vigil for cancer-stricken children, ordering parents and their sick kids out of Lafayette Square in Washington D.C. on Saturday night, the Washington Post reports.

The Secret Service cited security precautions, effectively ending a two-day event, CureFest for Childhood Cancer.

“We ended up waiting at the gates for two hours, and they never let us in,” said Natasha Gould, an 11-year-old Canadian girl who started a blog after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this year. “And to be clear, the entire crowd was half kids. I cried last night in my hotel room because it was my first CureFest, and I couldn’t believe people were acting like they don’t care about children.”

Secret Service couldn’t be reached for comment.
