Cambridge Rally Calls For Love and Unity Following Charlottesville

Posted: 08/14/2017 17:22:00 -04:00 Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - They cheered to spread a message. 

Nearly twenty people showed up near Route 50 and Maryland Avenue holding signs and cheering to drivers passing by.

It was a Sunday evening rally that people like Mary Handley say, given recent events, was necessary.

"We're being with the rest of the country tonight saying our hearts go out to Charlottesville," Handley said.

But not everyone agreed. At least one driver didn't like the message the group was sending, but the people at the rally kept right on loving.

"Even the miserable souls filled with viciousness and hatred," Handley said. "We got to show that there's another way."

The nation is still reacting to the violence and protests that happened in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend - including people in Cambridge.

Handley says it's a time to inspire a younger generation.

"It's a teachable moment to teach the next generation," Handley said. "You've got to call out racism."

And it seems to be working. Karelly Sanchez brought her friends along to stand up for something they didn't see was right.


"Although we're a small town, to be able to still show that we have a voice," Sanchez said.

It was a vigil where old and young united for a brighter future.

"In a couple of years, my children will be learning about this in their history books," Sanchez said. "They'll ask me what I did that day and at least I'll be able to say, I came out."
