As a small child, every spring I retrieved the flattened bodies of toads from the road in front of my house and buried them, with flowers, in the backyard, so I guess that makes me one of the "roadkill community," as Ms. Murphy terms it. Generally this subject is one that our culture pretends not to see. I thank Ms. Murphy for listening to her inner promptings and following this story, and I thank HCN for bringing this difficult subject matter to its readers’ attention.
