The 128 deaths from COVID-19 in Alexandria are being commemorated in the small yard outside Christ Church (118 North Washington Street), a historic Episcopal in Old Town.
The green lawn is partially covered in white flags, each marking a death from the pandemic that started one year ago.
According to a sign in the yard:
Each flag represents the death of one of our fellow Alexandrians from Covid-19.
In the words of our Episcopal liturgy, these loved ones rest in that place ‘where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting.’
All are welcome to come, to pray, to remember
A display of small white flags has been used repeatedly as a reminder to the deaths from COVID-19, and similar displays have been put up at other churches across the country.
