This gathering of Julian's friends and admirers is in response to his family's invitation to meet at "a body of water…precisely at 3:00pm" to participate symbolically in their sharing of Julian 's ashes with the sea....
For us, there is no "body of water" in the world that holds the symbolic power of the water surrounding Dr. and Mrs. King's crypts at the King Center. That is why we chose to gather there.
There will not be a formal program. Ambassador Andrew Young will be there and will deposit a floral arrangement in the reflecting pool at 3:00pm on behalf of all who meet there to honor Julian. The King Center has asked us not to put any flowers directly in the water and we will honor that request. We ask the same of everyone in attendance.
Please feel free to disseminate this information as widely as you choose.
