MILWAUKEE — In an effort to show solidarity with Ukraine amid the war against Russia, the Hoan Bridge was lit in the colors of the country's flag and members of the area's Ukrainian community sang during a ceremony Friday evening.
TMJ4's Bruce Harrison attended the ceremony and has several moving videos:
