Sadness


Sadness! Very much so. With yesterday's massacre there is lot more sadness around the nation as it mourns another school shooting. I picked up my DD from soccer and in that town, not very big, all the flags were flying at full staff so on the way home we went by our "town". [We really don't have a town but a few businesses here and there.] All the flags here were flying at half staff. The colors in the flag were pretty dark, so, my DD took over the keyboard and used the marquis [sp?] tool to add color. It kind of works, but she messed up around the bottom of the pole - oh well.

The sky is a great color and the emotion is very sad. Anyone involved in this and ,in fact, anyone involved with any school are in my prayers. So sad...

Beautiful picture. Its a very sad day. I attended Tech, lived in the dorm room and attended classes in those very same rooms. Those families and everyone impacted are in my thoughts and prayers.

I think you captured the nations emotion perfectly. The flag against the sunset sets the mood.

The evening lighting makes the mood even more somber if possible. Our prayers/thoughts to all effected.
