East Stroudsburg, Monroe County - Dozens of people came together Sunday night in Monroe County to remember and pray for the victims of Friday's school shooting.
People joined together in song and hugged their children close at Dansbury Park in East Stroudsburg.
On a rainy Sunday night, the group came together by candelight to honor the young children and teachers killed on Friday.
"I have a six-year-old, a seven-year-old, I have a nine-year-old and they all go to school everyday and it scares you," Jennifer Kluck of East Stroudsburg said.
Through prayer, the group gathered to send their love and maybe just a little comfort to families they don't even know.
"Our desire is to let them know that they are not alone and we will walk with them through this pain," Pastor Dana Antal of Stroudsburg said.
With the names and ages of the victims on one woman's shirt, she grieves like so many others worldwide for the senseless loss.
"I can't even imagine what these parents are going through today or the family members but I hope that they know that not just in their area, it's going everywhere," Aimee Kohler of East Stroudsburg said. "It's touched everyone."
On a dark night, organizers say the candles show there is light and there is hope even in the darkest hour.
"I was tired of watching the news and I felt like I needed to do something and there's power in prayer," organizer Sapphire Serrano of East Stroudsburg said.
