United We Plant

1Mayor.jpgO.K., so United We Plant is the worst name ever for a 9/11 memorial, but you have to give it up for the Hollywood/Los Angeles Beautification Team for hosting a tree planting today at The Grove. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa presided over the ceremony in which a yellow ribbon was tied for fallen FDNY Captain Patrick Waters.

FBLA stumbled on the solemn ceremony quite accidentally, so we apologize for the poor quality of the photos. But we were so moved, we felt the need to post. There is something about a tree planting ceremony outside a Crate & Barrel that really captures how clumsy we all still are when trying to put words to national grief.
