..Proclaim peace unto it...Deuteronomy 20:9

We were gone this afternoon to a HS graduation celebration for my husband's nephews son, Ross who will be going into the Marines in two weeks. I shot this Self Portrait tonight at 9:00 after we got back home...I taped the flag on the back of our truck window....For some reason I had difficulty with this self portrait but it is an effort. I tried different poses including the pledge and it didn't look right until I actually touched the flag on the very last picture. My wish is that wars will end and I pray there will be peace all over the world.
