Today is DÍa de los Muertos and some of our league members will be celebrating the lives of their departed loved ones. The Junior League of Charlottesville is thrilled to celebrate the diversity in our league and celebrate along side them.
The JLC remembers the wonderful ladies of our league that we miss dearly. We continue to cherish the memory of their lives and their impact on our community.

Here are some great "did you knows" about this wonderful holiday:
It’s not “Halloween” and it’s not scary. DÍa de los Muertos is a day where people gather and remember the friends and family that have embarked onto the next cycle of life, the afterlife. While death can be a tough subject, this day is a reminder that death is nothing to be afraid of.
Every decoration, color and item on the altars have a meaning. Yellow represents the sun and unity- under the sun- we are all the same! White depicts the spirit and purity. Red represents the blood of life. Purple is for the feeling of mourning that still remains in the hearts of those living. Pink is for the happiness that takes hold when a memory of a loved one makes you smile.

The flowers that are used are marigolds. It is believed that the scent of the marigold flower leads the spirits of our loved ones back from their resting place to the homes of their family members. The sugar skulls are not there to scare or to be morbid, they are there to represent the cyclicality of life as we know it. Lastly, you will sometimes see butterflies, specifically the Monarch. They represent the souls of the departed.
Candles are lit to light the way home. ¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

Unity for Charlottesville Concert, September 24th, 2017

They thought they could win with hate, but they only incited a more profound response based in love. What an amazing night with the inspiring, talented artists who came to bring our community even closer together.

Looks like the white supremacists were too afraid to show up.

"Never look down on someone unless you're helping them up".
I wanted to caption some poetic statement about how we're all under the same sky but the truth is, we're not. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to look up right now and see this. But some of us look up and see nothing but smoke. Some see angry skies, wind and torrential rain. Some are too busy looking down, trying to save their flooded homes. And some will look up and search beyond the clouds, praying for help and understanding in this climate of distrust, abandonment, and betrayal. And that's just in America.
This beautiful planet we ALL call home is angry. She is in tears for us. But they are angry tears. So many things need to change. Our planet needs to heal. Our country needs to heal. And it must start here. With me. With you if you're reading this. For where else can we start? "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone". #mothernature #shesangry #cometogether #standwithcharlottesville #dreamers #heretostay #hurricaneharvey #hurricaneirma #latunacanyonfire #wildlandfire #montana #loveoneanother #rantover #nofilter
