The march against drugs
seen around the world


In May 2004 a number of Clay County churches pooled their spiritual resources, cried "Enough," and urged their members to march through the streets of Manchester to show that good was about to look evil in the face and not blink. The news coverage of the "march against drugs" eventually was seen around the world in newspapers and television. Since that time Manchester has been known as the City of Hope, and the churches continue their fight against drugs and drug dealers in Clay County. The city has become widely known around the U. S. in church circles for its efforts, and has served as an inspiration for many town to fight back using Manchester as an example.
