Default Sebastian Lukomski memorial ride & service

In memory of Sebastian Lukomski, the bicycle messengers (and their
friends) of
London yesterday, 27th February 2004, marked the place of their colleague's
death with his name. The spot, previously a bleak and windswept
confluence of
iron and tarmac has been turned back to something more human, more cared for
than mere road surface and pavement. There are flowers to sweeten the
atmosphere, pictures of Sebastian's face to lighten the road and marks
to tell
of the love of his friends, colleagues, family and lovers for him.

May he always brighten that place.

Today, nearly 200 people squeezed into the Polish Church in Islington to
hear a
memorial service in Sebastian's native tongue. We will never forget
him, but I
and many others were not, and still are not, ready to say goodbye.
Sebastian
is the seventh London bicycle messenger to have died after a collision
with a
HGV (truck).

May he be the last?
