Honoring Steve at the Commitment March on Washington Aug 28 2020

I am Suzanne, Steve's sister. I have finally fulfilled a long-sought connection to Steve’s participation in the 1963 March on Washington. In honor of Steve, I attended the 57th Anniversary of that March on August 28th This was named the Commitment March by the Reverend Al Sharpton. Many thanks to R. Clark's Jan 2016 and Barbara Dowdall's May 2020 postings with their memories of Steve. I am also grateful to you for confirming my remembrance (I was 18 at the time) that Steven was with his fellow Unitarian activists at the original March. Although my brother was killed in 1968, it is as if it were yesterday. Indeed, Vice President Joseph Biden is correct when he said: “I know that deep black hole that opens in the middle of your chest, and you feel like you are being sucked into it. I know how mean and cruel and unfair life can be sometimes.” My gratitude to VP Biden for finding the words that have eluded me to explain the pain and sadness.

Unitarian Universalist Liberal Religious Youth

Steve and my older brother, Arthur McDowell, were officers in the regional congregational youth group, LRY. We live in Philadelphia and I remember Steve's visiting our home on occasions when New York youth came to participate in officer meetings or conferences. I remember that Steve had his own business card, unusual for a high school student. Arthur posted the card on his office (also unusual for a high school student) bulletin board. I remember Steve's cheerful personality and enthusiasm for the work of our religious youth. I was another one of the UU teens attending the March on Washington on August 28, 1963.

Response to R. Clarke

Thank you for writing on the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Wall your memory and sorry for my brother Steve. It meant a lot to me to read it and to know that there is another person sharing in keeping Steve's memory alive.
