A Sad Week: But Old Glory Still Hangs Proud

This is a sad week.

The news is full of images of the tragedy in Boston during the Boston Marathon.

The bombing has made the nation weep. Our flags are at half mast in the cities.

Still, through it all, we endure. We are proud of our heritage as Americans, a land of freedom and promise.

On that note, I wanted to share a photo that I took inside a Mall. I have always loved the imagery of the flag set against a backdrop of mirrored office building windows.  The geometric patterns and the lovely silver reflection of the mirrors is stuning amid the display of Old Glory in a Minneapolis indoor market.

Without further ado, I post this picture and with it the hope and positive energy of Americans to support those affected by the bombing in Boston this week, and the explosion in Texas.
