Today : 12/13/14 in SF : 2:00 pm Millions March

Hello All,

Just found out about the Millions March taking place today, so I will not be wearing red white and/or green at our Saloon gig tonight, I will be wearing my usual black again.

Frankly, I honestly don't think that anyone really cares what I'm wearing, but I figure that if I didn't mention it, someone would invariably come up to me and complain that they decided to wear red/white/green because I mentioned it in my previous blog post. To which I would have to say, "get a life."

And life is definitely more precious than anything else, which is why I feel compelled to share the following information about the Millions March taking place today all over the country.

If I don't see you at the Ferry Building, perhaps I will see you in North Beach at 9:30 pm.
Hope and pray for peace. Be the change. The future starts now.
What kind of world would you like to create?

Love,
Mari

From Etecia Brown - 
"We must come together in unity to show the world that black lives matter. There is power in numbers. Everyone is encouraged to come support this peaceful demonstration Saturday December 13th @ 2pm. Meet at Ferry Building.

#blacklivesmatter.

We must not only show our power, but show that there is still hope for humanity, we must show the world these deaths are not in vain.
This must happen in every major city, so spread the word. From East to West. Copy this text, and make this happen in your city. Invite as many people as possible. This is happening in New York, DC, and Oakland .

This is not too ambitious. This is possible.

We march.
Together.
As one.

Because #wecantbreathe

San Francisco is Ferguson. Ferguson is San Francisco.
