International Roma Day

cistus-salvifolius-flower-waterHere are some suggestions for observing International Roma Day (April 8):

  • Placing a flower in the nearest river, lake, ocean etc. – the waters all flow together into one.  In the same way, the disparate Roma people are all united through their common heritage.
  • Lighting a candle – as a way of remembering the many Roma who have died as a result of oppression and hatred.
  • Learning more about the Roma Gypsy people, telling others about them, and praying for their needs.
