Nice old mailbox shot - but quite sad. Makes one wonder who Sarah was?

29 Jan 2007 1:25pm

@Anne: She was a beautiful 15 year old girl who was murdered by her boyfriend (to the best of my recolection). Anyhow, this photo was taken near my home at a local park where Sarah liked to hang out. The community was so disturbed at her passing that they created a memorial for her at this park. The mail box here is at this memorial. I may have more shots of this place on future posts. It is a very peaceful place.

Nice capture. It's important that stories like these are passed on. That way others will have a chance to learn from them and hopefully not make the same mistakes.
