This was taken along the waterfront of St Louis on the morning we left.

Thank you Shirley and Diane for this tour. It was so sad to see this and yet so beautiful.

    It is a sad scene and yet it is beautiful. I like the 'well worn' look : )

    Your photo is like a composite image of what our country is going through right now. Still standing tall and proud but could easily fall.

    This shot gives me chills !!!! I kid you not. It is one of the most amazing shots I have ever seen. It make me proud that it is still flying and yet sad at its condition. I love the fact that the homeless in that area still keep it in the air. Outstanding shot girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Deeply symbolic, and emotionally charged--I feel the pain and sense of hopelessness--

    Very emotionally resonant rendition of this so iconographic symbol--evokes a wide range of ambivalent thoughts and sentiments.

    I agree David Adler. It was heartbreaking to see it in this condition. But I was proud of the homeless people in that area still wanted it displayed.
