Informally organized by some people in the Menlo Park community, “Holding the Light for Kindness” will be held on Friday, November 18, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, at Fremont Park in Menlo Park.
Explain the organizers: “Friends and families are invited to join together in bringing light to dark places and in casting out intimidation, bullying, bigotry, and exclusion. We gather in a collective prayer and pledge to protect the earth and all of her people. Together, as members of a strong community, we offer our love to support and celebrate diversity and protect each unique individual as we stand together in light.
“Please bring a candle or flashlight and help shine a light into the shadows of hate.”
