It's ridiculously sad and speaks volumes about our public school system and gadget-caused isolationism.

But your image is fabulous, Carol. #9504537

Description

7/3/11, DD. I have to work tomorrow, so created this for the 4th. Below is the original of Knoxville at sunset. I used many layers to change lighting, change colors, add fireworks, and figured out how to make reflections. Have fun tomorrow, everyone! (By the way, I read today that 1/4 of our populace doesn't know who our independence was from!!! SAD!!!)
