“You’re looking at somebody who’s been shot with a 45. You’re looking at somebody who lost everything in Katrina and I was told I would lose my baby, she’s 28 now. I’m here because of prayer, and I know the power of prayer,” said Shannon Easter.

People believe a change is coming.

“God has not left this beautiful city to be forsaken like this. We are the city of soul. We are the heart of Mississippi, so God has not forsaken us he has a plan to prosper, never to hurt never or harm,” said Gean Tucker-Johnson.
