BREMERTON — Crowds of people spanned the Manette Bridge starting at 1 p.m. Feb. 25 for the Kitsap Builds Bridges, Not Walls vigil.

The vigil, organized by Brian Watson and Sally Jo Martine, was filled with people spreading a message of love, not hate, and inclusivity, not fear, and so many more.

As cars went by, a large majority honked in support, to the cheers and waves of the people standing in solidarity on the bridge.
