Memorial Day

I took this shot about 11 years ago. We were walking through Arlington National Cemetery and I saw this man out of the corner of my eye. Just a man, sitting with an old friend, looking out at the past, remembering a time when they stood together in the same place and faced the same ordeal.

If you've never been to D.C., go while you still have the chance. Say what you want about the people there that get all the press. When you walk around that town, you're walking through the biggest museum in the world. And what's on display is America the idea, with all its majesty, all its arrogance, and all its idealism. Every now and then, it's worth thinking about.

  1. I love this photo, Greg. We're going to DC in July, along with Phila. Hope you entered it into a photo competition then - it's a winner.
