Justice and Hope: National Day of Remembrance (10 photos)

Victims of horrific crimes gathered Saturday in Carter County for as part of the National Day of Remembrance.

State Senator Robin Webb said, "There is support, sharing and healing in love for the families of victims and survivors. There is always hope for understanding and forgiveness. Ann Bauers does a wonderful job in providing help to people."

Will Wilhoit said, "My family feels so blessed to live in this community, and we always want to pour out those blessings back to our neighbors who need to feel the love that we share. My heart goes out to these families, and I pray they were comforted by the service."
