    Bishop Timothy J. Clarke of First Church of God, Columbus will preside over the second monthly interfaith prayer vigil to remember homicide victims and their families. The vigil will be Sunday, November 22 at 5 p.m. at Mayme Moore Park, 240 Martin Luther King Blvd., Columbus, Ohio 43205.

    Vigil attendees will remember eight homicide victims and will pray for an end to murders in Columbus. The goal of the monthly vigils is to bring awareness to the community about the affects of violence in our community, and to bring comfort to family and friends of homicide victims.

    "es;One of the greatest forces in the world is the power of memory,” said Bishop Clarke. “When we remember, we are spurred to action. These vigils call us to remember and to act.”

    The prayer vigils are hosted by Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to prevent gun violence through education and public awareness. The first prayer vigil in Columbus was October 18, and lasted approximately 20 minutes. Columbus has 74 homicides in 2009.

  15. I love you little cousin and i still can not believe that you are gone….there will always be a whole in my heart….Aunt Kim, Uncle, Tash, and Tae smile in his memory though it is hard, but we all know how funny he was and how much me loved to make everyone laugh. God has a plan and a purpose for everything and I can't wait until I can see Kahlil again!
