Grassroots Gatherings And Prayer Services Held In County Many turn to faith for comfort in time of sorrow
In Cold Spring, more than two hundred people gathered around the waterfront park gazebo at 7:00 p.m. on Friday night for a candlelight vigil, which had sprung up as a grass-roots effort. A local resident, responding to an Internet call for everyone in the country to do the same, put up flyers and told a number of people to meet him at the gazebo with candles. The group sang patriotic and inspirational songs, beginning with "God Bless America."
