Two men hold hands in prayer
"On Druid Hill ave. in Baltimore, Maryland, two men hold hands together in prayer. Rioters on one side, the police line on the other. While some seemed to condemn their actions, the two men continued to pray for safety. I'm uncertain if they knew each other but it seemed as if they didn't, but wanted to come together with the commonality of prayer."
