Members of the community came together tonight in downtown Franklin in response to drug abuse in Macon County. The group prayed for those using drugs, for their families, for law enforcement and for those who are working with drug abusers to help them stop abusing drugs.
Michelle Rogers organized the rally. Carol Anne Elliot and Mike Barres spoke at this first meeting.
The group has started a Facebook Page [LINK] as a point of contact so people can find help, can share what they're going through and find out when other events are taking place. the organizers plan to hold prayer rallies every first Friday of the month to continue praying and networking in person.
Video and photos from the prayer rally are posted below.
