“Can We All Get Along?”
Rodney King, rest his soul, asked that question of the country during the L.A. Riots and now organizers of a popular annual rally against crime will ask the same question to promote peace in the Pine Hills community on Saturday, October 26.
That’s when the Kingdom Network Empowering Communities (K.N.E.C.) group will sponsor its 6th Annual Stop The Killing, Start Living, Choose Peace rally. The rally will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Silver Pine Village Shopping Plaza at the corner of Pine Hills and Silver Star roads.
Organizers say the free rally will feature live gospel music and dance, food, a Lost Treasures Ceremony (on behalf of victims of violence in the area); a community roundtable, games for children and more.
As in the past, organizers are inviting everyone who lives, works and plays in the Pine Hills area, to join them in standing against crime in the community.
Anyone interested in having a booth, providing supplies or food or getting details, contact the K.N.E.C. group at http://www.knecus.com or call Bishop A.L. Helligar at 407-721-4817 or Pastor Michael Kimbrough at 407-234-9619.
K.N.E.C is a faith-based organization made up of a consortium of churches and concerned citizens in the inner cities of Orlando working together to support our community. The group’s aim is to organize a community to find solutions to the epidemic of violence, according to the group’s website.
