Almost a year ago, the sounds of gunfire and terror rang out from a part of the Mount Carmel community. Last Friday evening, the sounds heard were that of remembrance, uplifting words and songs. And hope. Some 40 persons came to the McConnell Auditorium on the campus of Mount Carmel High School for a memorial service, called “Light of Hope.” The service honored the memory of the five persons who died in a shooting spree in a trailer park on Route 541, just a half-mile away from the school.
