Trump's victory sparks protests and prayers

From Michigan-

It looks like Donald Trump's honeymoon may be over before he has even gotten a chance to say "I do" and put on the ring.

They protested in Detroit election night, yelling nasty comments and chanting "not my president" for three hours. Police were there to keep order. Similar protests erupted around the same time in New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

Protestors appeared at the White House, Texas, southern California and Seattle. There was violence and the destruction of property and businesses in Oakland.

There will be a protest Thursday evening in Grand Rapids. Grand Valley State University students are the organizers. They have plans to converge on Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids at 5 p.m.

On Facebook, several hundred have indicated they will attend.

Kalamazoo went in a different direction, with a communal interfaith prayer for peace.

Over a half-dozen religious leaders from all different beliefs convened at St Luke's Episcopal Church in downtown Kalamazoo to share religious writings and music all with a theme emphasizing peace.
