Full of Grace

I was walking to work one night and I saw the Madonna statue in front of a building that was destined to come down on this gentrifying city block. Something about it pulled at me; once a family home maybe, is she standing watch and no one cares any longer, and what is, if any obligation to this lawn ornament?
