Forever in peace may you wave

I went to a memorial day ceremony yesterday that wasn’t all “America the Beautiful.” It was hosted by the Veterans for Peace who weren’t too shy about asking how many Iraqi civilians will never get to fall in love because of a glitch with an unmanned Predator  Drone. We heard from parents who son isn’t in Arlington because he succumbed to the wounds he received in Afghanistan not on the battlefield but at the end of a garden hose in Massachusetts. Tough stuff. For the most part,  Ryan T. Conaty Photography is proudly made in the USA. I love my flag, but listening to the people who’ve defended her makes me think she’d fly higher if the white stripes outnumbered the red.

PS: It’s interesting that as professionals we share similar instinct…
