New Orleans holds second Mother's Day parade

(WTVM) -

People in New Orleans gathered for a second chance at the Mother's Day parade that abruptly ended in a shooting.

The original organizers gathered on Saturday to redo their annual Mother's Day parade following the same route they originally mapped out for Mother's Day, making sure to stop at the corner where the shooting happened to pray and honor the 20 people injured that day. The group refuses to let the violence keep them from finishing what they started. 

"Things happen we just have to pray after the circumstances that happen but today is still an outdoor party for the mothers that didn't get their party. You don't dance a half of a dance you dance whole dance," says Hermon Joseph, an attendee.

Police have arrested seven people in connection to the shootings.
