Victims of Violence Wholly Day
Victims of Violence Wholly Day is observed next on Thursday, April 4th, 2024 (40 days from today).
Victims of Violence Wholly Day is observed annually on April 4th in order to honor those who have sacrificed to change segregation laws in America and support those who have suffered under slavery and violence.
Origin of Victims of Violence Wholly Day
Victims of Violence Wholly Day was created in order to mark the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King on April 4th, 1968 in Memphis. The basic point is to remind us that nonviolence is often better than violence, and his dream has not yet come true for everyone. What I recently learned is that the reason he is in Memphis is to lead a march in support of the striking garbage workers. I never knew why he was there before, which is a sad statement about my education. Hopefully others will do better, or, like me, be inspired to learn more.
Celebration of Victims of Violence Wholly Day
There are many ways to commemorate this day. Do you have any idea for it? Maybe a party or contest about the knowledge of Dr. Martin Luther King. The best and most meaningful way to celebrate this holiday is for everyone to wear black to show solidarity with the victims of slavery and violence. In addition, people run programs that visually affirm the principles of nonviolence as preached by Dr. King.
