Chicago Lantern Walk by Light The Night

Festival Details - "Chicago Lantern Walk by Light The Night"...

Start: Saturday, September 21, 2024 5:00PM
End: Saturday, September 21, 2024 9:00PM

In history, the act of carrying lanterns in the dark to victims of violence symbolized a poignant gesture of solidarity, support, and the pursuit of justice. Often in the aftermath of conflict, tragedy, or injustice, individuals bearing lanterns would venture into the darkness, not only to provide literal illumination but also to offer a symbolic light of hope and compassion to those affected.

Lanterns, in this context, served as powerful symbols of empathy and resilience. They represented a collective commitment to standing with the victims, acknowledging their suffering, and expressing a shared determination to seek accountability and redress for the injustices they endured.

This practice was a deeply human way of acknowledging the plight of those impacted by violence, serving as a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there existed a glimmer of hope and support from the community. The presence of lanterns not only provided practical illumination but also conveyed a profound message of solidarity, resilience, and the unwavering pursuit of justice for all.

In many cultures, the act of bringing light to the victims of violence through lanterns was a poignant expression of empathy and a call for societal healing and restoration. It was a tangible embodiment of the age-old belief that light can dispel darkness, both literally and metaphorically, offering solace and the promise of a brighter, more just future for those who have suffered. 
 
We encourage everyone to join us, regardless of age or background. Let us come together and stand in solidarity with those impacted by violence.
