Community stands as one


CHAMPAIGN-URBANA — Dozens of people are standing as one. They stood outside the Central Illinois Mosque and Islamic Center to show support to the Muslim community.

People of all ages attended; from children to those over 90. They gathered in a line while holding posters with powerful messages.

People came out from afternoon prayer and thanked those. The head of the mosque says it brings him peace knowing he doesn’t stand alone.
