As we were driving south along peaceful and winding country roads I saw several places where people must have died in traffic accidents. You can tell because they mark the side of the road with little wooden crosses to honor those lost. And it got me thinking about the cross and how popular it is.
I'm not sure what the most popular tattoo is? But I'd say the cross is right up there at the top, next to the topless Hula dancer and Mom? And of all the things people hang from their rear view mirrors the cross is a close second behind the pine tree air freshener. But easily when it comes to jewelry the cross is number one. You don't even have to be a Christian, people just love rockin' the cross. Cross earrings, cross charms, cross bracelets and the all time best seller, cross necklaces.
Are there any atheists out there that are sporting a cross somewhere?
And what does the cross symbolize to you?
