A Nashville restaurant held a vigil in honor of the 49 people killed in the Orlando terror attack.

Days after the massacre, people all over the country have come together to heal and remember the lives lost.

One of the places for prayer and remembrance Tuesday was Kingdom Cafe on Jefferson Street.

Although it's hours away from Florida, organizers said Sunday's deadly attack touched all Americans.

"We're one. And we want to most certainly pray, but pull together in unity to support every person that's an American and that's why we're here. That's part of the ministry,” said Rev. Howard Jones.

Some of the survivors of the massacre spoke for the first time Tuesday about what happened.
