EVENING: Tonight we gathered for an interreligious worship service for understanding and peace. Faith Leaders from Buddhist, Sikh, Jewish, Muslim, Quaker, Baha'i, and Christian. Below are quotes and images from the service.

"I think we need to be planting compassion... peace..." -Rev Valerie Hayes
"I envision all people coming together in unity...Tonight, all of us said 'yes' for understanding...for peace..." - Rev. Russell Heiland
