BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

People gathered at Waterfront Park in Beaufort Tuesday for a vigil honoring those affected by the Orlando shooting.

The vigil was hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and organizers said it was great to see people coming together for something that matters.

“I think it does two things – I think it strengthens the individuals. They are not alone. It gives its support and affirmation to individuals and also strengthens the connections,” Interim Minister of Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Kevin Tarsa said. “Even now we’ll see people interacting with each other that either haven’t seen each other or met each other before. And so it strengthens both the individual, I think, and the community.”
