The City of Franklin is showing they are determined to stand strong during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In a video posted by officials, the city calls on residents to remain #Franklin Strong and to "traverse these unprecedented times together."

"Sometimes we need to be reminded that no matter the situation Love, Hope and Faith will always shine through the midst of sadness," the post reads.

Images of the city's historic main street and buildings are mixed with the smiling faces of area first responders and residents with their hearts on display.

City Public Relations Director Ed "Tiger" Verdin says the video was shot as a way to give hope to the city.

Franklin resident LaDaisha Bowles-Webber provides her voice to the video singing Andra Day's "Rise Up."
