Li'l Cindy Shrine
There was a particularly heartbreaking murder last week in DC. Cynthia Grey ("Li'l Cindy"), 17,was gunned down in front of her home on Benning Rd. NE. She saved her infant godson by hiding him under a car as the killer began firing. She was by all accounts a positive, decent young woman, uninvolved in gang or other illegal behavior. Relatives, friends, & neighbors erected this shrine, the first I have seen clearly calling for an end to violence, and free of gang symbols or piles of liquor bottles.
