MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The “Ride of Tears” will parade through Memphis for the organization’s one year anniversary.
The group drives caskets around town to bring attention to the gun violence problem.

“And when you see those cars coming, and those babes in those little cars, and them big old caskets, it’s wrong,” Trice said.
She said the mother of the man shot and killed at Pepper Tree Apartments will ride with them, along with members of various motorcycle clubs.
“I’m sad,” she said. “I’m mad and it’s got to be something done.”
They’ll ride past various children’s hospitals.
Riders will line up at 5 p.m., then leave the Liberty Bowl at 6 p.m.
