PORT ANGELES — Hundreds huddled together Saturday evening at City Pier to pray for those injured or killed in Tuesday’s terrorist attacks.
They wrapped themselves in blankets, waved American flags, and sang and prayed together.
Congregation members from more than 20 church banded together for the twilight event.
“I came to be around other people,” Marcia Matthew of Sequim said. “I thought it might lift the depression a little to see others gather and pray together.”
More than 300 people participated in the event, praying for those who died in the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks and for the rescuers risking their lives searching for survivors.
