Social Sports Kickball at the Monument
My kickball team was playing its weekly game at the monument. We took a breather, and I happened to have my cell phone and look up at this moment. I love how my team look so calm and unassuming in the foreground, while the ultimate symbol of freedom stands so bold in the background. It is a great moment of juxtaposition. It hit me, wow, I am so lucky that I get to play sports on the national mall every week.
