A total of 12 people were killed and 58 others injured during a movie massacre in Aurora, Colorado. It's a terrible tragedy that has touched so many, even those here at home.
"No longer is your life your own because you never know when the next person is going to wild and shoot you down," said Freda Hudson of Scott Depot.
On a day when many people gather to worship, Dunbar Church of the Nazarene is remembering the victims.
"I felt a tremendous sadness for them," said church member, Jim Vance.
Sunday, Pastor Larry McCallister spearheaded a special worship called, "How The Colorado Massacre Could Happen".
"I'm trying to convey the accurate human condition but also the hope that is found in Jesus Christ," explained McCallister.
McCallister says Colorado's shooting hits hard. He lost a dear friend in the Oklahoma City Bombing.
"There is just so much pain right now in that community especially since Columbine happened not long ago," said McCallister.
The church remembered and honored the victims through song and prayers for a brighter day ahead.
Church members pray the victims and families will find comfort through something they say is vital, hope.
"Without hope you really don't have anything. If you had no reason to look to tomorrow for brightness or anything, I think it would destroy your life," said Hudson.
President Obama is expected to meet with families of victims and survivors on Sunday night.
The city of Aurora plans to hold a vigil across from where the shooting took place.
