We hope you join us today, and pause to remember those who sacrificed all for freedom.
I have a shot of a fledgling Black Phoebe from the nest under my shed’s eave.
The baby’s parents work all day, from sunup to sundown. They have no Social Security, or insurance, or police. No bailouts or or safety nets of any kind. Underneath the nest, neighborhood cats wander by and pretend to be casual. It’s a poignant lesson in self-reliance and family.
