I took this photograph as I was walking to Georgetown and noticed the Ghost Bike placed in Dupont Circle by the Washington Area Bicycling Association. The ghost bike was placed in a ceremony on July 10 (more information here) following the death of 22-year old Alice Swanson, who was killed by a garbage truck while riding her bike to work on July 9, 2008, in Dupont Circle.
As I walked by, I noticed the words written on the tire by Alice’s mother. They had an impact on me. They will on you too. Click on the image to see them for yourself.
