The Reverend Henry Brown stands on the sidewalk looking at nearly 300 crosses of the city’s dead.

“Every name from 2000 up to 2010, the cross is here. And we’re just showing folks that we’re not just whistling Dixie. We are serious ‘cause  this is real.  All these folks with this crosses on used to be human beings that was on this earth and alive. Now they’re gone.”
