This monument was put in sometime very recently, because it was not erected yet the last time I visited Lake View Cemetery, but it was there when I traveled there Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend.
I’m not sure that I have any words that could illuminate more than this sculpture and its placement. It was recently installed – it definitely was not there this time last year, and it absolutely took my breath away.
That would be because they’re metal and welded to the monument. But they’re still very cute.
