Hundreds gathered at the Empire State Building Thursday evening to pay homage to Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Mother Teresa, who would have turned 100 on August 26 had she been alive. Some were there in “peaceful protest” against the Empire State building’s decision not to light up the building in blue and white, but others said they were there to “simply celebrate a great life.”  Peter O’Hara joined several hundred protesters at the Empire State Building on Thursday.
