My grandson, Ewan, held his tiny American flag high during a commemoration of the events of 9/11/2001. He asked me why some people killed so many for no reason. He was not born when those events occurred, and yet his life has been affected by them in a way that he cannot understand...can any of us? How can I explain?

    What an evocative photo. I think you can say, what I have been saying: That evil is real, that it is here, and that it must be confronted.

    One can only hope that one day there will be peace; we all need to work toward that. Let him know that it doesn't always need to be an 'I'm right and you're wrong' world. Beautiful capture, Judy.
