A Family Pauses
Category: Spontaneous Moments

Following a base shooting where a U.S. Marine murdered his comrades, outrage and sorrow was felt across the country. Flags nation-wide were lowered to half-staff. During a walk along the National Mall, a family was seen from a distance walking at the base of the Washington Monument. At one point, they paused, looking upward and onward, taking in the awe around them as they stood in solitude on a quiet, cool evening in our nation's capital.
