Body:
Billboards in Milwaukee are showing a simple message of support for the city rocked by recent violence.

The message has a heart and the letters MKE.

The company that owns the billboards, Lamar Advertising, tells our Milwaukee affiliate WISN-TV it launched the campaign two days ago.

Some people who've seen the message say they hope it makes a difference.

 "If they love their city, they can stop the violence. If they love their city, they shouldn't be doing the way they're doing now," says Milwaukee resident Jermaine Robertson. 

Andrea Keller, another Milwaukee resident, responded to the message by saying, "I think it opens up a lot of people's eyes, to love the city of Milwaukee, it is a great city."

The billboard company says it plans to keep the message in rotation on electronic billboards in the Milwaukee area for the next several days.
