The Armenian Genocide Commemorative Committee of Northern California is holding a “Walk for Remembrance” across the Golden Gate Bridge to commemorate victims of the Armenian Genocide by the Turkish Otoman Empire and all others who have suffered from crimes against humanity. The walk is scheduled for Saturday, April 24th from 11:30-2:30pm, starting at the South end of the bridge. We invite you to join us to commemorate all victims of genocide, create awareness and fight to prevent future crimes against humanity.
That’s the invite on the community events page. We have been made aware of this event by a woman from church. It would be a nice thing to do she says and we agreed. Anything that would take us outdoors on a Saturday especially if the event takes place in Golden Gate Bridge, we are there.
It was the most glorious day. We ended up spending a lot of time on and below the bridge. I took a ton of photos. We walked and walked and ended up in Fort Point pier, talked to fishermen, and walked around some more.
When we were ready to go, we drove around the Presidio. Hunger pangs called and the answer was a little snack at this Vietnamese place in Clement Street. Then we drove to the Golden Gate Park, parked the car and walked some more. It was the day to walk – for remembering the victims of genocide, or simply for energizing the soul. I was glad I woke up early that Saturday and walked.
MY WORLD is here.
