Homeless Memorial Day
Men and women gathered in front of the Homeless Task Force and began marching toward Atlanta City Hall on Nov. 1. Some carried coffins, others held signs aloft, but all marched for the cause of ending homelessness in Atlanta. The day was considered to be Homeless Memorial Day, remembering those who have died on the streets. Following the march, there was a litany for the dead on the steps of City Hall and dinner was later served to hundreds of Atlanta's homeless at the cathedral of St. Philip. The day ended in a requiem mass at the Cathedral.
