Albany -- A small group of South Georgians braved the early morning cold, to take part in a Community Unity March, where Ministers and Rabbi's prayed for all religions and races to put aside their differences.

 Rabbi Dana Kaplan of the Temple B'Nai Israel prayed "letting enemies begin to talk to one another. Those who are estranged join hands in friendship. Let us seek the way of peace together."

After prayers, a couple of dozen people marched in the Community Unity march from the Ray Charles Plaza to the Flint Riverquarium.

 Some said they felt it was a privilege to march on this Martin Luther King day, despite the freezing temperatures. Calandra Jefferson said  "I felt like coming out in cold weather was a small, very small sacrifice compared to individuals who fought water hoses, dogs, and even bullets for the right to vote."

The Marchers joined together for breakfast at the Riverquarium.
