COLUMBUS, Miss.(WCBI)- If you were traveling down main street in Columbus today you may have seen yellow shirts and heard people chanting “stop the violence”.

The parade began at the Columbus Soccer Complex and moved down Main Street.

“I think anybody that cares about their kids or care about their family members they should be out here because you don’t know whose house this is coming to next there’s a lot of people dying around here and no body is taking it serious everybody’s complaining about the cold weather. When we can all come together and pray and touch and agree and believe god for a change,” said Ball.
