KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- People gathered Friday night at the Liberty Memorial to spread a message of love - not hate. They found out about the event through social media.

More than 30 people showed up for the rally and candlelight vigil. Organizer Kenneth Mack was giving an anti-violence message to people from all over the metro.

"The purpose of it is just to bring awareness to wanting to end the violence and everything that's going on. We've got so much division here in the city and nationwide, and the only way to end it is to unify, to love each other, to get past that," he said.

Mack says they’re also in the process of filming a music video for a song he wrote regarding anti-violence, which he'll eventually post to his Facebook page.
