I choose to write about the garden. The house was damaged in the fire set by the perpetrators and demolished. The property may still belong to the survivor. Undoubtedly no one planned to construct a new home in its place. The community felt a sense of reverence for the land similiar to a place where marytrs were slained. A memorial garden was planned and it is maintained. The victims were contributors. Both daughters were involved with the cause of multiple sclerosis on behalf of their mother who was diagnosed with it.
It rained today so I could not walk through the garden. In spite of the violence the garden is serene. It is a tribute to what the victims tried to accomplish while they were alive.
