I found this photo oddly poignant as Chris escorts Devon from the building.
Tutus Abbey Road photo
This scene was cut from Patton.
With Tutus, you’re never quite sure whether she hasn’t figured out how to remove the headgear, or whether she is just attempting to prevent you from seeing what she’s up to.
Devon hops and skips and dances like a colt.
Chris was honored to be part of the color guard for his graduation.
This isn’t one of my kin… just the son of another military family. I couldn’t help but look at him and think of the danger his father might see, and the sacrifice he might be called to make. This picture could very well be of a child at a hero’s wake. Fortunately this time it was a happier occassion. But it makes one think of the price that is paid.
