One week after two devastating mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, many communities in the nation came together to remember the 31 lives taken.
Sunday night members from Park Church, in Downtown Elmira, came together for a candlelight vigil. Attendees gathered at the church and walked to Wisner Park in silence with lit candles.
Members spoke up for the need of change in laws and attendees also sang ‘Amazing Grace’ together for the lives lost. The church bells tolled 31 consecutive times, one for each life lost.
