OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police officers, fire fighters, and EMS personnel often get taken for granted as they put their lives on the line to save others. Citizens of Oklahoma City went out of their way to make sure their city's first responders were recognized for fulfilling their duty Saturday.

The E Pluribus Unum rally was held at the OKC Downtown Airpark on Saturday from 1-3 p.m. The public was invited to wear blue to show support of law enforcement, and attendees held signs that read "Many Uniting Into One."

"Our objective is to show support apolitically by involving all citizens whose voices are normally not heard, but who represent the 'silent' majority of Oklahomans and Americans. It it time for the majority to stand up physically and vocally for law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS personnel," the rally's press release stated.

The rally included live music, support statements from local officials, and a testimony from Jed Chappell.
