A few dozen people joined them to light a candle, write a word or a thought, and be together.
Now they’re doing it all over again in the Depot Plaza on Sunday, Nov. 13 (5-7pm). “Let’s be together again in the midst of all our intense emotions over the election results,” Williams says. “Bring the children, light a candle, make a wish, pray a prayer. We have paper and markers so you offer some words or a drawing into the circle.”
At the conclusion of the Nov. 9th event, Williams had a stack of those words written by adults and children that came from that evening, including messages like “A deep breath and a wide-angled view,” “Keep your voices strong throughout the next four years,” and “Love to all must conquer hate.” She expects more to come Sunday.
“They are a beautiful testimony to our Mill Valley Community: in the face of our collective grief, the words are of hope and love,” she says.
