ROCHESTER, Minn.- The recent stabbing in Rochester has left the community shaken. But, some have refused to let this bring them down and instead have chosen to spread some positive light on this dark incident.
Charles Jackson is a member of the group, 'A Ministry of Good Works.' The group was praying at the scene of the crime on Tuesday evening.
He tells KIMT what he does is important because, "I used to be a person that was involved in the community but in a negative way. But now that I have changed my ways, that I come out to spread that word of love not just by my words but by my actions."
Charles wasn't alone. Other ex-convicts, recovered addicts, and others who have turned their lives around for the better gathered with him, spreading their positive energy and prayers.
Caitelyn Traore, who celebrated the graduation of a halfway home on Tuesday, stated, "It's amazing because I was a negative impact on the community and now I can impact it how I used to impact it before I started using."
Charles assured KIMT this isn't the end of their 'Never Again' movement.
