Tomorrow night the annual Homeless Death Memorial
March takes place. A Day of the Dead, if you will, for those of us who passed away this year without having a place to call home. You want more info? Here you go:
Please join us to commemorate homeless people—our friends, relatives, neighbors, acquaintances, and even some who none of us got the opportunity to know—this Thursday, December 20, at 5:30 p.m. at Civic Center Plaza. Bring a candle, if you can. If you know of any one who has passed away, please make sure that their name is included in the service by contacting San Francisco Network Ministries at 415.928.6209. [via Street Sheet]
So be sure to dress warm, grab a candle, and head down to Civic Center Plaza at 5:30 p.m. sharp on Thursday night (12/20). There, you will honor many, schmooze with a few strangers with whom you might not socialize under normal circumstances, and maybe hear a surprising story or two about someone you never really knew at all. Aw.
