MUSKEGON, Mich. – After a recent string of violence in the Muskegon Heights area that has left several dead and many others wounded, a local mother-daughter team decided enough was enough.

Mother Judy McMahon and daughter Kelly brought people from all over West Michigan together today for a prayer service – open to anyone wanting to peacefully call for a change in a disturbing and dangerous trend of violence.

“Prayers are very powerful. This is a start,” said Judy. “We just want to let the people of the city of Muskegon heights know that they are supported and cared for.”

It all started with a Facebook event, one that saw more than 350 people click ‘attend’ in just 24 hours. Today, those who did attend gathered together to pray, and armed with trash bags, went to clean up anything they could inside the city. It’s a simple event both Judy and Kelly hope will morph into a real change.
