This the scene of one of the shootings of Thursday, July 16, 2015 in Chattanooga, TN. The military recruiting center where the shootings began is located here. A makeshift memorial has been set up in front of this office complex that has been a place where the community has come to pay their respects to the four Marines and one Sailor who lost their lives at a Naval Reserve Center. Media outlets have been broadcasting from here for almost a week sharing the story of the act of terror but most importantly how our community has responded. It is a place where a crime took place and now it is where people are finding a new day, hope and healing.
