We gather so we do not grieve alone. On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at 7:30pm, we'll gather to dedicate the ghostbike for Joe Lavins.
Joe Lavins was killed riding his bicycle in Cambridge on Wednesday. Read more about him here: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2016/10/06/lexington-man-killed-cycling-crash-recalled-kind-generous-spirit/ZaixCoeDl0Yj5IEuE7OhTI/story.html
We gather to dedicate a ghost bike, a visible sign of an invisible reality- that we are fragile humans, only here for a little while.
We gather to make visible sign of a dawning awareness- that we must peacefully coexist on these shared roads for all of us to stay alive.
We gather to honor Joe's life, to pray for all who grieve his death, to rededicate ourselves to the day when there are zero fatalities on our city’s roads, a peaceable city, not paved with gold but with protected cycletracks.
We know a wide circle of people have been affectived by this trauma. Please come to share your grief, anger, and hope for a day when there are no more road fatalities. Cyclists, motorists, pedestrians welcome. Please share widely.
Please meet on Mass Ave, across the street from the Porter T Station, in a small plaza along Mass Ave between the Dunkin Donuts and the CVS. The Ghost Bike is locked to a pole on the edge of the plaza along Mass Ave. See Facebook comments for a map of the location
