Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI) - With national tragedies comes fear within our own communities.
After these tragedies, some don't know how to process why things like this happen.
Innocent people were gunned down in their own church in Texas on Sunday.
It's no question that many feel there is just no safe place to be.
That's why the local community is hosting a prayer vigil for the Texas shooting victims.
The vigil is on the front steps of the Vigo County Courthouse on Monday at 6:30 p.m.
Reverend Clark Cowden will be leading the vigil with prayer. Anyone is invited to attend.
Members of St. Joseph church say they feel unsafe after events like this happen.
"It's really sad that we're not safe anywhere," said Letitia Grose, member of St. Joseph's church in downtown Terre Haute.
Some say the most common thing with the recent shootings is the problem of mental health.
"I think we do need a lot more help with the mental health situation because a lot of these things are coming from people who are mentally upset," said Anne Dillard, also a member of St. Joseph's church.
