I Am America

While hanging around friends and family on a Fourth of July evening, I came across a child. This child was a family member of a friend who I had grown up with. This child, dressed in his patriotic red, white, and blue shirt, held a firework in his hand. He ran around the backyard having fun like children do on the fourth of July. As I brought my camera out, he spread his hands wide as to say “Here I am, bright in my Red, White, and Blue.” It was a fitting shot on the nation’s birthday.
