KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Members of the Kansas City, Missouri, community gathered on Wednesday to remember the 19 students and two teachers killed in a mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas.

The Latinx Education Collaborative held a vigil in the Pendleton Heights neighborhood.

During the vigil, people set down a candle in front of a newly-painted mural.

Painted on the mural is a little girl with a jar that is labeled "hope" on it.

"We must create hope, it's not granted," someone who attended the vigil told KSHB 41 News.
