Being surrounded by so many diverse people coming together in one space to celebrate el Dia De Los Muertos is a beautiful experience. I have never attended a Dia De Los Muertos event as my family and I didn’t celebrate it. Immersing myself in such an event and being able to participate in one as well has been an experience. As I walk through the hallway of the altars, there are so many people that are being honored. The overarching theme of this year’s Dia De Los Muertos is “Honoring Those Who Have Build Bridges Not Walls.” Through the altars we are honoring family members, friends, and so many other people that have not been forgotten. As a community we are coming together and celebrating a collective theme.
