Лубянка- one week later

I was out this afternoon and decided to pay respects at the memorial at Lubyanka metro station.  The bombings happened one week ago today.  The memorial was covered in flowers and Easter eggs and a group of people stood in a semi-circle.  Some were wiping tears, others crossed themselves in prayer, and every few minutes another person placed flowers on the table.  A few candles were lit on the floor.  Someone tacked a poem about life being short on the wall nearby.  It was very beautiful.  I noticed quite a few guards in the tunnel, but other than that it was a still-life pasted into a busy landscape.
