Solstice Homeless Requiem

The Tenderloin-based San Francisco Network Ministries... collaboration with the Coalition on Homelessness...

...held their annual "Interfaith Memorial for San Francisco's Homeless Dead" Wednesday evening in front of the Christmas tree in Civic Center Plaza while marking the Winter Solstice.

It was a small, solemn crowd that listened to various religious leaders give short homilies before reading the names of those who died this year while living in the streets of San Francisco.

After each name was read, the lady above would chime on a bell... their souls would be acknowledged publicly... an attempt at bringing light to darkness.
