Campers march against violence in Rochester
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Summer campers from Community Lutheran Ministry marched across their neighborhood in Rochester with a message of anti-violence Thursday.
Organizers say the involvement of close to 100 kids is significant because they hold the key to making life, and the community, safer.
"These kids are our future. They get a tolerance earlier to say 'no, that's not what I want in my future. I want a positive future. I don't want the drugs, the violence. I want to see a change,'" said Frederick Perry, camp director.
Marchers also stopped at several spots where people died by violence, to pray and to remember them.
