Day 288

Day 288

It doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is a physical sensation that reverberates through my soul: the moment when I have captured magic.

Today was this young man's senior photo day.  He wanted to start in uniform.  As I looked through my camera and captured this, the "that's it!' feeling occurred. 

It was in his eyes... the story that needs to be told.  He, like so many young people, for each their own reasons, have signed up to serve this country of ours. This crazy little country, that seems about as stable and rational as hormonal teenager, is what they have chosen to protect and serve.  While we can all sit and be keyboard warriors, jumping behind whichever view point we wish, there exists young men and women, who, everyday answer the call to sign up and defend us.


Just Wow..... I am humbled and grateful for young men like Jared.
