“Sometimes what you’re looking for comes when you’re not looking at all.” ~ Unknown
I ran into Jeff Suchanek today. He’d seen yesterday’s post about the Sunken City, and told me he didn’t see the cross when we were there. I don’t know if the cross is symbolic of lost lives (maybe someone died during the disaster, I don’t know), or maybe someone just thought it was cool. After all, graffiti artists have made good use of the broken concrete slabs and leaning palm trees, so why not a cross, too? But you know me, I love a good well placed cross. This certainly qualifies. I really don’t know if someone lost their life here, but I sure hope not. I’d rather believe the cross is here as a symbol of hope. We all need a little reminder of hope now and again.
