    In yesterday's NY Pride parade, a group of 49 people did this:

    Amidst the dancing and cheering and celebration, they walked silently, without waving or smiling. Each with a photo and name.

    It was effective. It can be hard to picture just how many people were lost.

    The crowd got pretty quiet as they went by. It seemed like an important element to the parade. It's still with me.

    The fact that the couples were holding hands was especially heartbreaking. Seeing their relationships brought to mind the relationships with the people left.

    Totally agree. I was there and it was very effective. It made me very emotional.
