The year of 2020 is a special year because of Covid 19. President Trump got the virus a couple of days ago. Many of us have been trapped home for months.
It is a sunny Sunday, I went to the post office to drop the vote. It is so nice to be outside. Many people are wearing masks now.
Does this look like a dog on the wall?
One the way back, I saw the beautiful yellow flowers.
I took some videos and photos and climbed over the hill and came down on the other side.
A Railroad extends in front of me.
When I was walking along the railroad towards the street, a police car stopped behind me.
He questioned me and checked my identification. He told me they were chasing bad people.
Do I look like a bad guy? absolutely not.
This is an interesting experience to be stopped and questioned by a policeman.
He gave me a direction to walk out of the railroad and told me this is not a safe place.
I walked out the railroad to the street and came upon the Memorial to Fallen 21
The memorial is for the loss of firefighters at the Union Stockyard Blaze in 1910.
On December 22 of 1910, a fire started in the Nelson-Morris Meat Packing Company. The collapse of the seven-story building killed 21 firefighters instantly.
Bill Cosgrove, a retired fireman, wrote a book on the fire and became the driving force raising monies for the 8-foot bronze memorial.
Artist S. Thomas Scarff recreated the scene of that fateful fire, showing the chief of the brigade, James Horan, holding a bugle upwards to warn the men of the falling wall；a truckman raising his axe to protect himself as he falls backwards；an engine man focusing his hose on the fire unware of the danger.
The granite base includes the names of those who died that day as well as others who have perished in the line of duty.
October shows the golden color everywhere
a small rose
red unknown fruits are cute
quite a lot of railroads
This fence must be very effective to prevent thieves
She wears mask too.
Flowers at street side are all beautiful.
What an evenful day today. First time to vote for the president；first time to be stopped by a policeman when I am walking；first time to see so many railroads in this part of the city；first time to see the Memorial to Fallen 21, a tradgedy of history.
As the flowers show me life is beautiful, we should respect life.
Wish everyone a good day and my family to stay safe and sound.
