While it may not appeal to a liberal media hyperventilating about gun control and the Confederate flag, residents in Charleston, S.C., held a unity march Sunday in honor of the nine African-Americans killed while attending a Bible study class.

Titled “The Bridge to Peace — Unity Chain,” the march was led by the families of the victims killed last week. Participants were clapping and singing “This Little Light of Mine” as they crossed the iconic Arthur Ravenel bridge, according to WREG.

“We want this to be an event that honors the Mother Emanuel AME Church and the citizens of Charleston who continue to make us proud,” organizers said on a Facebook page set up for the event.

And did they ever.

Black, white… young, old… South Carolinians turned out by the thousands.

“It feels great,” Summerville resident Juliett Marsh told WREG. “There’s so much love out here.”

Here’s a small sampling of posts of the march from Twitter:
