WBNC NEWS: Were there a lot of people there?
RESIDENT: Yes.  There were a lot of people there.  It was an open house so people came and went.

WBNC: Was there a large media presence in the church during the service?
R: Media was outside and they were not allowed in the church.

WBNC: And did their presence influence the prayerful theme of the service?
R: No, the media was out on the street.  They were not near the church.  Police were present to keep the media away and to just be there.  Rev. Dr. Edward J. DeSilva offered to be there to listen to people for counseling.  We were just supportive of each other.  Nice showing of classmates, school staff, and community.
