After a presidential inauguration, a million-woman march and week-long immersion of media hype controversy, it was good to take in the real spirit of community in Bay Village on Jan. 15 when resident Lorelei Suehrstedt organized a ‘Circle the City With Love’ event in front of the Bay Village Police Station on Wolf Road.
“The mission is to embody the power of love that brings healing, peace and justice to our cities, our country and our world through the simple act of holding hands and standing together as one in intentional silence at an important moment in our history,” said Lorelei
Her effort was part of a Circle the City with Love movement that went nationwide last week.
“The mission of Circle the Cities with Love is to stand together holding hands in silent meditation embodying the power of LOVE that brings healing, peace, and justice to our cities, our country, and our world around the inauguration of the president elect and all the demonstrations being held throughout the week,” says their website.
It is non-political. Participants make a pledge ‘to be substance free, nonviolent and nonpartisan, putting the power of LOVE that brings healing, peace, and justice into our cities, our country, and our world, by standing/sitting in silence for one half hour in the spirit of love around the inauguration of the president elect and all the demonstrations being held throughout the week.’
