Shining A Light

Seven hundred Lights for Liberty vigils were held at dusk on Friday, attracting tens of thousands of Americans seeking to raise awareness on how refugee children are being treated at the U.S./Mexico border. More than 200 people gathered for the Yankton vigil, held on the Meridian Bridge. The speakers included Jacob Bies, who recently returned from working with families on the border, and Pastor Ron Johnson who ended his comments with a verse from a popular song: “What the world needs now is love … no, not just for some, but for everyone.” The crowd then silently marched onto the bridge with lights in hand and sang “My Country Tis of Thee.”
