It was hard to find an appropriate photo to post for 9/11. I wanted something that would convey a feeling of peace and life. There is just so much unrest in the world right now, it was hard to think of something peaceful.

I think you have found a quiet sadness here that leaves room for our own thoughts.

I completely agree, Elaine but this fits the bill I think. The thought of becoming involved again in ANY kind of conflict disturbs me greatly after so much destruction to spirits and lives and families has taken place...Hugs to you - sorry to be so scarce <3

Wonderful shot of those elegant flowers. It's hard to say about what happened at that time. I offer silent prayer in sorrow for the victims of the incident. I strongly hope for world peace. Have a great day, Elaine. :)

Poignant thought...
I wish God knocks some sense and wisdom into the heads of the misguided inhuman souls!!!

These deep colored flowers are a fine example of "pear" that is needed today. A very nice shot.
