March For Peace Is Just That – Peaceful
The beautiful day was the perfect setting for a peaceful remembrance and call for justice. The walk began at 4:00 processing along the downtown sidewalks and finished at the RAMS field.
The organizers (seen at the far end of the field below) thanked those who participated.
When the organizers called for a moment of silence, the entire group knelt and remained absolutely quiet.
At the end of the moment of silence, the organizers thanked participants again for attending. At that point, according to the plan laid out by the organizers, the groups immediately began heading to their vehicles (it was strange to see so many cars parked at the school buildings.)
Holliston Police officers were present to ensure the safety of all involved. The officers I spoke with were pleased with how the march happened.
Thank you to all who showed support for others, both as peaceful marchers and socially distant participants while demonstrating for social justice.
