Peace and unity prompted people to put on their walking shoes Saturday in South Bend.

Dozens of people marched and sang church hymns through the southeast side of the city.

The peace walk was led by the group SAVE, which stands for Stand Against Violence Everyday. SAVE aims to get ahead of gun violence in the city.

"We're trying to raise awareness to say we need to work together to make sure that our streets and our communities and our schools and our churches stay peaceful," Elkhart resident Liz Digitale Anderson said.

The half-mile walk ended at Ravina Park, where speakers say everyone has a lot more in common than they think.
