Even total strangers are expressing their grief over the horrific deadly shootings that took place on Sunday.
Some people may look at the shootings as a tragedy for the Jewish community, but others took time Tuesday to acknowledge it as a tragedy for everyone.
The deadly shooting in the parking lot of the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park will long be remembered due to the hateful nature of the crimes. Since then, though, people are dropping off items at the center's entrance to show their love.
"I just felt compelled to come out and show support for our Jewish community after, everyone knows what happened a few days ago," said Sabra Miller, a Raytown resident.
Miller chose to make a personal statement of solidarity with a flag of Israel and a sign that said "We support our Jewish community" on her day off from work.
"Truthfully I was offended, I was just so offended that someone would drive three hours and come to attack this community," she said.
She found from others in the metro that she is definitely not alone.
"Honking, thumbs up, waves…one lady stopped and gave me a bottle of water. Some of the kids that are coming out of school just saying thank you. It's tremendous," Miller said.
Miller said she isn't Jewish, but is non-denominational. She said her heart made her stand out along the street for four and a half hours with the sign. She shouldn't be surprised if it brought her out there again.
