ODESSA, Texas — The City of Odessa has announced plans to virtually remember and honor the victims as we approach the one year anniversary of the mobile mass shooting.

From now through the 31st, the City encourages everyone to share photos, art, and personal stories on social media using #OdessaStrong and #ATimeToRemember.

Citizens and businesses are encouraged to place a yellow ribbon on their door to honor the victims.

1000 yellow flags will be available at the Family Resiliency Center of the Permian Basin, the Odessa Chamber, Odessa Arts, Connection Church, and at area businesses to be placed at Memorial Gardens.
