On August 26, 2003 WTOC 11 News in Savannah, GA, reported that a local peace coalition held a rally in support of the Muslims whose mosque recently burned down. "[T]he Muslim members are feeling a little better after attending a rally held in support of them by the Savannah Peace Coalition. 'We're here in solidarity,' said Kelly Gasnick, who organized the event. Nearly two dozen people showed up for the candle light vigil to rally around the members of the Islamic Center. 'It's clear that the members of the community were victims of racial and religious terrorism,' said Gasnick."
