The Boston-based Mother’s Day Walk for Peace this year is online, but we are walking in Watertown! For those of us who yearn for the company, shared purpose, and exertion of the “Walk” part of the Mother’s Day Walk, Watertown Walks for Peace has organized a short non-virtual inperson walk.
We will meet at the Church of the Good Shepherd for a brief outdoor gathering led by the Rev. Andrew Goldhor and walk together to the MLK mural at the Boys and Girls Club finishing in time to return home for the 9 AM Broadcast. JOIN US at 8 AM Sunday May 9 at The Church of the Good Shepherd (corner of Mt Auburn and Russell). Bring any banners or signs from your organizations or groups. We will wear masks and practice social distancing.
What a good way to honor your mother. The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace supports the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute in Dorchester, a center for healing and teaching, supporting those who have lost loved ones to homicide, and working with young people to teach the ways of peace. It was founded 23 years ago by Chaplain Clementina Chery, the mother of Louis D. Brown, who was killed by random gunfire in 1993. The Institute has earned a reputation as an innovative leader for peace. For more information visit: http://www.ldbpeaceinstitute.org/
