On the third floor of the book depository, there had clearly been a major fire. The ground was nothing but charred books and paper, and a fine soil that was obviously what remained of many of the books that had burned completely.

 

Some brilliant graffiti artist created this "book phoenix" rising from the ashes. So beautiful.
