This is a tribute to the bicyclist who was hit and killed by a garbage truck back in July. I was moved by the fresh flowers in the basket.
It did make wonder though, I know there are folks who complain about the teddy bear tributes that go up from time to time when a youth is shot and killed. You see them sometimes on Sherman Ave. or upper 14th Street among other locations. There is even a blog called Washington’s Other Monuments that documents these memorials. It is also a very moving site.
Do you think there are folks who complain about the tribute photographed above? (It’s located near La Tomate on Connecticut Ave.)
