Markers

We see these crosses throughout the region in what to many of us appear to be random places, yet their placement is anything but random.

Placed by loved ones, they mark the location in which someone has fallen, more than likely the victim of an accident or maybe a random slaying.

This collection of crosses is at the northwest corner of Thornton and Woodbridge roads in Lodi. We see these markers and move on, maybe wondering who they honor or how long they have been there. If we were to stop and take a closer look, we can see the love and pain of those who have cried there. And also the stark beauty in their work.
