My local Civil War monument in Jamaica Plain has been turned into a memorial site for the 27 students and teachers, and administrators killed last week at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. The memorial was organized by Carlos and Melida Arredondo, who lost a son in Iraq a few years ago. They have been involved in anti-war and peace campaigns ever since.
