Thousands March for Hailey Owens

More than 10,000 people showed up for a candlelight march in memory of Hailey Owens in Springfield, Missouri on Saturday.
Hailey's stepfather said he was overwhelmed by the community's support: 'We just got home and I have never seen so many people or heard a crowd that loud all unified as one voice.'
No one expected this many people to show up in participation.
People had to bring their own candles. Streets were closed to motor vehicle traffic. All to remember a 10-year-old girl who was abducted and murdered. Her killer has been arrested,

This is how much the life of one child means to a family and a community.

What more can I say?

RIP Hailey Owens
