Chattanoogans of different faiths and from different walks of life braved the rain and even a few claps of thunder Monday night as they gathered at Coolidge Park to pray for peace in the city and then march for the same across Walnut Street Bridge.

Kids hoisted signs with the names of each victim killed as a result of violence in Chattanooga this year as firemen, policemen, and city officials walked alongside local residents.

Mayor Andy Berke and Police Chief Fred Fletcher attended.
