Makeshift Memorials

Some people have claimed space to honor their dead on Lorne Street in Boston. I saw it while driving someone home.

I’m concerned this someone has to come home to this reminder of dead people. Or that she has to see it when she looks out the window in the age of Coronavirus.

The many candles flicker, lighting up the life of someone who lived and probably even stood in that space.

The dead are more alive than we think.
