NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) As the nation tries to heal from what happened Saturday in Connecticut, Arkansans are also healing tonight.
Many gathered on the River Trail in North Little Rock for a vigil held by Families are Special. The group say their goal is to let the families of the victims know that even here in Arkansas people care.
"We believe here at Family are Special that every family deserves a forever family. And the children that were tragically taken away from their families yesterday lost that right," says Becki Emerson.
Emerson says her heart breaks as these 20 kids were taken away at the most innocent ages.
