April 17th Marked As Second Life Remembrance Day

April 06th, 2008 | Category: Festival, Lindens, Memorials, Music

Recently I posted about a site in Second Life in which you can make a memorial for your inworld loved ones and friends who have passed on in RL, in this post Remembering Our Friends Memorial in Second Life. Linden Lab has decided to make April 17th Remembrance Day for everyone who has lost a loved one or friend and has dedicated two sims to it.

Second Life Day of Remembrance, April 17th, 6 am to 11 pm SLT Big Easy

Resident Katt Kongo recently lost a dear friend, SL resident Ginny Talamasca. In response, Katt conceived of a new community event that would commemorate the life, spirit, and creativity of all the residents who have left us. April 17, Ginny’s birthday, marks the beginning of the yearly ‘Day of Remembrance’ in Second Life.

The event is organized around the New Orleans tradition of the Jazz Funeral and the Second Line. Rather than a sad, solemn affair, a New Orleans funeral celebrates life with music and parading. Our parade will depart from historic Jackson Square and crash joyously through the Big Easy region four times–so that Residents in all time zones can participate. Source: [updated] Second Life Day of Remembrance is April 17

They are making this a resident created event, meaning if you are a builder and can do something cool then volunteer and make it happen, or if you are a musician or a DJ, you can perform on the main stage. Sounds like this could be a great event and a way to remember everyone who has been lost from our virtual world.
