Community honors Orlando shooting victims with prayer vigil


On June 17, just five days after 49 people were murdered at an Orlando, Fla., nightclub after 29-year-old Omar Mateen opened fire, the Noblesville Community gathered to remember and pay respects at the downtown courthouse square. The candlelight prayer vigil, organized by Roots of Life Community Church Pastor Teri Ditslear, also wife of Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear, drew a crowd of more than 100, who listened while the names of all 49 victims were read and prayers were said by many, including Pastor Ditslear and other local heads of church.
