Forward Faith Future Fear

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Lauren Oxford-Quintanilla

This photo was one of those spontaneous moments that just happened while visiting the "Arlington Memorial Tribute in the Sand". Every weekend volunteers set up crosses, stars of david and various markers paying tribute to each soldier that has died since the beginning of the war in iraq. It is very moving to see and my daughter walked through, sometimes stopping to kiss the markers. This photo is very emotional for me and i only realized it after i reviewed the picture on my camera. As a parent you have faith in your child's future, always wanting them to move forward but not without fear.

Location: Santa Monica Beach, CA " Arlington Memorial Tribute in the Sand"
