Looking for an outlet to grieve, dozens gathered at Christ United Methodist Church Tuesday night to hold a candlelight vigil for those in Las Vegas.
The group "Caring acts of kindness everywhere", or "CAKE", held the vigil. The group stated they wanted to get people together and give them a way to express what they were feeling with people who could understand.
During the vigil, everyone who arrived read a name of a victim and rang a bell, followed by a moment of silence.
"I think right now what we need the most is for people to come out of their homes, to see each other and to let people know, I hear you, I see you, I acknowledge your pain," said "CAKE" organizer Danielle Teal. "I acknowledge your suffering and really humanize each other."
The group organized the vigil in response to what happened in Las Vegas, but they say the evening was for all those lost in tragedies across the world and in this country
