A beautiful heroic and patriotic young paralegal from Greene County, Virginia (which borders Charlottesille), was identified as the victim of violence that broke out after hundreds of white nationalists converged Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, to  participate in the Unite the Right rally held against the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from the Emancipation Park.heather-heyer-2

Heather Heyer, 32, died when a car with an Ohio license plate rammed into a crowd near the city’s downtown mall after the rally at the city park was dispersed, according to reports. Heyers was one of the counterprotesters marching in jubilation near the mall after the white nationalists dispersed from the scene.

 

Condolences poured in on social media, with many Twitter users saying Heyer died fighting against racism and hate.

 

One of the posts read: “Rest in Power #HeatherHeyer we will remember and celebrate you and the legacies of other victims of hate as we continue to #resist.” While another Twitter user said: “Her name was Heather Heyer. Killed by a coward in cold blood. Thank you for your heroism Heather. You won’t be forgotten. #Charlottesviille.”

 

Many Redditors also acknowledged that she died for a right cause. Here is one of the post.
