Quad Citians' gathered in prayer and unity Friday night to remember those lost in Sunday's Wisconsin temple shooting.
Dozens stood in front of Davenport's City Hall for a candlelight vigil to remember the lives of six Sikh worshippers.
Those who attended said they are taking a stand against the violence.
"There should be peace all around. There should be no killings. There should be no violence, senseless killings," said Satwinder Singh, Director of the Quad City Sikh Society.
While each candle was lit,
People of many faiths sung a Sikhism prayer.
They reflected on the lives lost Sunday, in Wisconsin.
Michelle Nixon attended the vigil, "My prayers have gone out to that community the entire time because I know they have to be hurting so much."
For many others who attended, the vigil meant standing united together for the Sikh Community and all walks of faith.
"By standing together, I think it shows that we are with each other. It's a way of physically doing something that says we're not going to tolerate this," said Clergyman Ron Quay.
In a moment of silence, Satwinder Singh said members of the Sikh Community were glad to see the support,
"We are happy to see all people here of different religions here, that makes us proud."
Folks at the Candlelight Vigil said they also took a moment to pray for the gunman's family.
