The XXX High School will hold a vigil in memory of “Kevin Smith” on Friday, Feb. 15.
The 15-year-old Smith passed away tragically during the weekend in a house fire.
Participants are asked to wear red to the vigil. Students may donate $2 for dress-down day. All proceeds will go to the family.
This is a horrible tragedy and I feel stupid for asking questions. But I really want to figure out what this means.
Why are people asked to wear red? To symbolize the fire? Isn’t this really crude?
What is a “dress-down day” and why do students donate money for it?
Are these cultural traditions I’m not aware of?
