I headed out to catch the sunset yesterday, but got distracted by all the vapor trails in the sky. Proof there were a lot of Thanksgiving travelers still out there on Sunday.
There are 177 small crosses placed throughout the Edgewood College campus this week. A cause of death is written on one side: probable hypothermia, heat exhaustion, gunshot wound to the back, or often “undetermined cause of death.” On the other side, some have names, many have “remains unknown.”
Each of them represents someone who perished in the Sonoran Desert last year, while attempting to cross the United States-Mexico border.
