Almost a rookie mistake.
I stayed and made some photos of the grads as they assembled outside. I will share those later today with other photos from their graduation.
I also made this image.
A few years back I made a photograph of a rainbow and the cross atop St. Agatha's in Meadville. It became a favorite of many and I even made a limited edition print of it and sold a few.
When I saw this last night I remembered that photograph but my mind really was thinking about the rainbow as a symbol of the Pride events happening this weekend.
Then my mind started down the deeper philosophical trail of how the act of acceptance is often met with resistance.
But as I looked at this simple image on phone I realized the countless interpretations that could be had. God and Country. Healing through faith. The furled flag could mean a difficult time for our country. So many things...
I may not be a religious person, but I do believe that through the actions of humans we are capable of learning and overcoming our faults. However slow that progress appears, it can and does exist.
But we need to have faith in our fellow humans and we all need to be better if true change is to come.
And it must come.
