While I was in Vancouver last week, Greenpoint’s Polish community, along with all Polish people suffered a dramatic loss that is hard to compare to anything in modern history, which was the plane crash in Russia that killed their president and several high ranking cabinet and military members and their spouses.  Being an outsider to this community, even though I live in the middle of it, there’s no direct way to see their mourning other than a few flags around the neighborhood marked with the typical black ribbon memorial.  I’m surprised with how little press it received both nationally and locally on community blogs.
