My Blog

I try to post photos on a regular basis on my blog. It’s sometimes just one photo, and sometimes several on one subject. The subjects depend on where I am and what I am working on. Come back and visit often or subscribe to get an email whenever I post something new.

Remembering WWI Armistice

Although this is a photo of a WWII American cemetery, I think it is appropriate to post it today in remembrance of all the people who have given their lives to their country. I was inspired by President Macron’s remarks in Paris today:

"Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism," he said through a translator. "Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values.”
"I know there are old demons which are coming back to the surface. They are ready to wreak chaos and death," he said. "History sometimes threatens to take its sinister course once again."
