THE BRONX - People from a variety of faiths and backgrounds came together at one Wakefield church for a special remembrance ceremony for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The annual interfaith event at the Trinity Baptist Church was hosted by Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., who encouraged everyone to remember King's words and accept disappointment, while remaining hopeful and progressing.

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and Rep. Charlie Rangel also spoke in honor of the late civil rights leader.

Attendees say they hope that commemorating King will help younger generations and the borough as a whole move forward.
