The Latin Souls Baseball Organization's opening day parade Saturday in Canarsie was a somber occasion held in the wake of two stabbing deaths in the community.

The two young victims both would have taken part in the parade. Last week, 18-year-old Tanaya Copeland was stabbed to death. She was to perform with the Royal Knights Marching Band down Louisiana Avenue as part of the parade.
