Gov. Wes Moore urged festivalgoers at an unusually somber 4th of July celebration to avoid “giving in to the naysaying” and to “keep on fighting together” against gun violence that struck during a mass shooting in Brooklyn early Sunday that left two people dead and injured more than two dozen others. “We know that these past few days and these past few weeks have been tough,” Moore said from a stage at the Cherry Hill Arts and Music Waterfront Festival, an annual event featuring music, art and evening fireworks in Middle Branch Park.
