AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

A concerned citizen in Americus wants everyone to join her effort to support law enforcers and encourage unity.

Gail Wall is organizing a gathering called Locking Arms for Law Enforcement.

She wants people to gather at the Americus public safety headquarters at 10 a.m. next Saturday, July 23 to lock arms and pray.

"I just wanted to do something, and I didn't know what to do. But I can take my neighbor's hand and pray with them and let them know that I care and let our law officers know that we care about them," said Wall.

Wall hopes the idea catches on and people in other communities will organize similar events.
