BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Friends and families of victims who were killed in violent crimes came together Tuesday night to march in tribute of lives lost too soon.
The march began at the liberty bell in Downtown Bakersfield, where close to 60 families are currently there to lift each other's spirits and begin the healing process.
Organizers told 23ABC about 20 percent of victims being represented in the march were killed by drunk drivers.
Yet, no matter how these lives were lost the community hopes to bring awareness to the tragedy and unfortunate situations that take place around the county.
The march ends at St. Francis Church were a vigil will follow.
