For Veterans Day, there was a very special and moving ceremony and walk to bring awareness to the struggles veterans are having.  Chris Bennett organized a Veterans Day Prayer and Suicide Awareness Walk at the Healing Field and around Broadway where dozens gathered to show support for our brave heroes defending our country.

Chris explained during the ceremony that veterans are coming home with scars, injuries, and are having a hard time.  A number of veterans, even from the Iraq War, are homeless.  The ceremony took the time to honor these warriors and their families and bring awareness of the increasing suicide rates among returning veterans. “If you want great faith, you have to care about other people,” Chris said.
