The In America: How could this happen... art installation by Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg, commemorating those who died in the USA from Covid, continues to grow at the DC Stadium/Armory. The goal is one white flag for every American who has died of Covid and the count is updated every day. Folks are invited to write the names of friends and loved ones who've died from the pandemic so they can be part of the memorial. It should be up until November 6.

DC -- Event: In America: How could this happen... (art installation by Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg) (Visit 2) (65 images)
Early voting started on Monday in Maryland. Our lines were shorter than in many states for in-person voting. Originally, I was planning to just do the mail-in ballot but as the Republicans have been working overtime to steal this election (funny how the only voter fraud cases so far are Republican ones), I decided to vote in person.
