“Dear PoPville,

I work in concrete bowels of L’Enfant Plaza, and have been puzzled by a strange plaque at the street crossing at L’Enfant Promenade and Independence Ave, right behind the Smithsonian Castle. There is a smallish metallic disc, screwed on to a hunk of wood strapped onto a lamp post that reads:

For Susan Anne Carter
(3/28/48-12/15/93)
And others who die needlessly
Let us be mindful and caring

Then there is a strange ship’s wheel like symbol below. Seems like a rather inauspicious presentation for such intense sentiment. Can anyone shed light on this? Something tells me car crash victim, but who knows. I have googled but had no luck.”
