    • A time to remember black sisters and brothers whose lives were brutally taken
    • A time for hopeful lament as together we express or own grief over our nation’s history of racism
    • An opportunity to become educated about white privilege and its consequences
    • Your commitment to become active participants in efforts to name our communities’ racial sins and address them in meaningful ways.
    • Lawn Chair
    • Water, Mask, Hand Sanitizer
    • Signs: Black Lives Matter, Whoever You Are, Wherever You are, You Are Welcome Here ... see the sign on the right
    • Your personal lament, written in the style of a Lament Psalm (optional)
    • Nonperishable food items or cash gifts for the Highland Area Community Services Food Pantry.
