Carpenter Travels Across the Country Building White Crosses for Shooting Victims
A memorial in El Paso, Texas, has been erected as a sobering tribute to the victims of Saturday’s massacre. 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.
