This Carpenter Creates Crosses to Remember Victims of Gun Violence
Greg Zanis has made tens of thousands of crosses for those who've died in shootings across the country.
As part of it, there will be 22 crosses in total, all made by Greg Zanis, each about 25 to 30 pounds. He said they are so heavy because “I don’t want them to blow over.”
The Chicago carpenter has made tens of thousands of crosses for those who've died in shootings across the country as part of Crosses for Losses. He said he has made over 21,000 in the years since the Columbine massacre of 1999.
The crosses bear the names of those cut down. Each cross is signed, “I Love You, Greg Zanis.”
As he got to work making crosses for the El Paso victims, the Dayton, Ohio, shooting unfolded early Sunday. Now, he has to make crosses for those nine victims as well.
