Thanks, Dan, Stephen and Murry.:-) This was not too long after 9/11, and patriotic displays were prevalent.

Very stirring capture of patriotism at its best, Patricia, and I especially like how you captured the lighting on the flags and those shadows!

Thank you so much, Carolyn, Jeff, Colette, Ron, Joy, Janet, Marie, Terry, Carol, Darren and Diane!

Ron, you know I considered bringing up the color just a wee bit, but then I thought I'd be going over the top so I left it "toned down." ;-)
