I was by chance walking by and recognized a good friend at this vigil, I start filming and asked her "what is happening"
A heard in the video from the start she informs me of the bike accident and the green bike box ....
It was shortly later, I realize it is my friend Ryan, who's girlfriend was the one this vigil is for.

This quite interview (video) was given to the few media cameras who gathered up close around Ryan and Madeline, while the community stood politely a few feet back, showing solidarity in quite serene loving-sympathetic way.

The Ghost Bike was there.

In peace & love ~joe
