AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – An impromptu prayer service took place at the community memorial for the Aurora theater victims on Sunday. People of all faiths joined hands in prayer.
More than a week after the shootings crowds are still gathering at the memorial. On Sunday a pastor led them in prayer.
Dozens of people formed a large circle and hugged one another, prayed together and grieved. Pastor Tommy Mitchell said Sunday’s message was not about religion but it was about being a good human being.
“We rallied at the church this morning and said we just wanted to come here and give love and hugs to whomever want it,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell said the service was evidence we can break down the barriers of religion and come together as one.
