100 Years and More

I found myself towards the back of the crowd, almost unable to see the gravedigger doing his work and the people laying down Revolutionary-Red carnations.

There in the cemetary that seemed to be located on top of the world, I scanned the traditional marble slab graves all around me.? Buried immediately in front of me, complete with the traditional brown and white fade-proof photo, is an old woman with the first name Liberia.? The dates on the grave read: 1896 to 2004.? I started looking towards the next grave but it suddenly hit me and my eyes zoomed immediately on that date again.. 1896.. . 2004. 108 years, right there in front of me. Amazing.
