Sidewalk of the Week: Burgess Street

This week's sidewalk lies outside the site of last weekend's triple homicide, and about six blocks from my house. Even though the family that lived here is gone, people walking to this point have used the sidewalk to mark their presence, the fact that they have noticed, to symbolize their loss. Flowers, teddy bears, candles, and baloons gather together here, forming a community of tragic memory.
