If Cemeteries Could Talk, What Might they Tell Us?
As it stands now unfortunately, very little. However I am on a mission to change that. I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, wandering through the headstones and monuments pondering what the lives were like of those who have taken up permanent residence. As a first step to getting them to talk I created OurStoriesAreUs for families who would like the memories of their loved ones to live on in the hearts and minds of generations to come.
While waiting for the next steps, here are a few of my favorite photos from my favorite cemeteries. Visit often for new updates.
Somewhere in Louisiana
Florida National Cemetery
My cemetery visits led me to create an online platform to help people to capture the stories of those loved ones who have passed so they can be shared with future generations. It is said that the last death a person will realize is the last time their name is spoken. I see this as the solution to immortality.
Note: My plan (somewhere down the line) is to add functionality at a headstone that a mobile phone can read and link to in order to play the stories here on OurStoriesAreUs.
