Nashville Vigil Honors Victims of Connecticut School Shooting

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- People at Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church paid tribute to the lives lost in the Connecticut school shooting.

On Saturday, about two dozen people at the church came together for a day of prayer, which included an indoor candlelight vigil using flashlights.

Those at the vigil also honored those in Nashville who have been victims of violent crime, including their family members.

Vigil organizers hoped their message transcended well beyond the church walls.

"I hope that they can see our story and know that we're praying for them," said Talia Monget Simmons, whose son was killed in Nashville earlier this year.  "We're here for them as well as people have been there for me."

Earl Jordan, who ran Sunday night's event, often organizes other vigils in the Nashville area for victims of crime.
