LAMENT FOR THE DEAD

My good friend Zach Buscher mentioned over brunch last month, that he'd gotten involved with something called Lament for the Dead , which was created and is curated by Carey Wallace.  I've never met Carey, but from her e-mails she seemed really nice.  Anyway, if you are interested, please check out her site here.

The project is simple: every person who is killed by police in the summer of 2015 and every police officer who is killed in the line of duty during that period, will have a poem written about them by a poet that has signed up for Lament for the Dead.
