Heaven's Gate Tennis Shoes -Remember the souls, not the soles!

There has been a lot of buzz on the blogs lately about the Nike Tennis shoes that the cult wore when they committed the mass suicide.

As a family member of one of those who followed the cults beliefs to the Next Level, I think its a sad statement about our culture that the tennis shoes get more publicity-- 11 years later-- than the precious lives lost on that day.

Is it the visual image that the shoes bring to mind of the bodies (vessels, to use their beliefs)that drives this buzz?

IS Nike creating the buzz?

Please remember the families and friends of those who left us on that day. Let's remember the souls, not the soles.
