investigated as a "hate crime"... after bacon was left in the parking lot and at the front door of a rochester mosque. today... a vigil was held to stand in solidarity with the muslim community. kimt news three's annalisa pardo reports.xxx singing: we shall overcome with song, signs, and statements people of hope lutheran church stands with our muslim neighbors, church of jesus christ of laderdae saints stands with our muslim neighbors. community members of all ages stood with masjed abubakr al? seddig... after bacon was left outside the mosque saturday morning. abdifatah abdi prays at the mosque. it's disappointing, but a lot of people make greater mistakes that are forgiving, anyone can forgive. colin lange particpated after seeing his church post about the vigil on social media. his reaction to the unkind act... the simple fact of ignorance, people not knowing, being afraid of somebody different than them. he hopes the cycle of ignorance stops now. thank you, say hi. give him a hug. he even brought his two kids to the vigil. if they can start being kind at such a young age and learn that everybody's different but the same, then the sky's the limit. everybody has to treat everybody the same, because it doesnt matter if theyre different or not different, you just have to treat everyone the same. singing: we shall overcome someday, abdhi fatah tells me he is appreciative that steps to overcoming prejudice... people at the vigil also tied green ribbons around their wrists to wear for the day.... to spread solidarity
