‘We Grieve’: Community project unites neighbors in healing
LONDON (AP) — The plywood wall that surrounds a building site and is painted with the words “WE GRIEVE″ in massive letters has become a focal point for people of London’s Stamford Hill neighborhood.
They gather there each Thursday to remember those who have died during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s nothing flashy. But then, it’s not supposed to be.
Organizer Rev. William Taylor says the community found, almost by accident, that there was a need to stand together to grieve. Britain has seen over 38,000 people die in the coronavirus pandemic, a death toll that is second only to the United States.
