The woman who launched a symbol

The woman who seems to have been the first to write a chalk message at Nathan Philipps Square writes about what she did.

I wanted to take … I don’t know, something. Flowers didn’t seem right. So I bought a couple of boxes of chalk. When I was done I left the chalk on the ground by the ramp, and … things got sort of splendidly out-of-hand.
