Someone took my idea and made it better. Not as if that is so difficult.
About six months ago, I wrote about a would-be visual protest of Covid. It went nowhere. Clearly, I did nothing to help it along. But none of my 700 reads per day got anyone else to do it either.
.....or did it?
Someone installed 20,000 empty chairs on the Ellipse.
That group, Covid Survivors for Change, got this going. They even got the
Singing Skull Dionne Warwick to be the host for the National Day of Remembrance. Good for her. I mean though - she had to see that coming, right? (get it? get it?.)
The chairs visualizes and represents better than my casket idea.
While it might be weird to say, I'm kind of digging this.
Hats off to them - and to BLOTUS who almost has to see it from his balcony.
