  1. It kind of makes me sad to read about all the classifications… This post really made an impact on me. Thank you for sharing… great image too (of course)!

  2. Not only is your photography amazing, I think it’s needed in order to remind us what once was in order to never go back to these ways of thinking and dealing with those who are special. No more locking up and throwing away the key.
